Mrs. Whaley"s gardening philosophy advocates the use of color, focal points, water, light and plant selection to extend the living area of a home, inviting walks and conversation, even picnics and romance. She will talk of the garden's "foot print" and use slides of her own garden on Church Street to provide visual amplification.
Following the lecture she will be available to sign copies of her book titled Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden at a reception in Daniel Library on The Citadel campus.
The public is invited and both events are free of charge.
This month Emily Whaley was the subject of a cover story in USA Today. In April she will be a guest on the television show "CBS Sunday Morning" and an excerpt of her book appears in April's edition of Victoria magazine.
