Eat, Drink, & Learn Series – Wise Trees
December 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$20.00
A lecture & book signing with acclaimed landscape photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel. Cook and Jenshel spent over two years traveling to more than 70 sites across five continents to photograph some of the world’s most historic and inspirational trees. The original vision for the book was born in 2012, from a personal experience of loss. Diane and Len were in Japan photographing the cherry blossoms at night when she received news that her father was dying. As Diane describes the experience of watching the pale white petals from the trees float away in the wind, “We looked at this amazing ritual of life and renewal, which happens every spring, and somehow, when we came back from that trip, we started thinking about the wisdom that we get from trees….and the importance trees have had throughout history in so many cultures.”
