May BosBuzz Event: Lens on Outdoor Learning

On Thursday, May 26th, at 6p.m. Boswell's will host author and educator Virginia Sullivan, reading from Lens on Outdoor Learning.

           Lens on Outdoor Learning is filled with photographs and inspirational stories for both teachers and parents. This book demonstrates how kids can create their own learning experiences through the process of natural exploration in nature. Though the book focuses on 3-12 year old children, the principles found within can be applied to children of any age.
Ginny Sullivan is co-principal of Learning by the Yard, a partnership that combines landscape architecture and education to help schools develop their grounds for habitat, play, and learning.                                                         
Ginny works with educators to re-design their outdoor spaces to help children and teachers reconnect with the forgotten beauty of the natural world.
When not teaching or writing she loves to garden, paint, take long walks looking for birds and knit baby garb, for her two grandchildren.
Following the reading the author will be available to autograph copies of the book. Refreshments will be served and the event is free to all.
