Travel back in time to France's lost medieval gardens


Gardeners, history lovers, and Francophiles unite! The price of airfare is high, and actual-time travel has not been discovered yet; the solution to both of these problems is armchair time travel to historic France.

Dr. Margaret Goehring, Ph.D., from New Mexico State University’s Department of Art will be talking about the fabulous lost gardens of Medieval France. Dr. Goehring is the author of “Space, Place & Ornament: The Functions of Landscape in Medieval Manuscript Illumination” and is a specialist in manuscript illumination and painting of the Low Countries and France from the 14th to the 16th centuries.

This program will be in-person at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, June 16, 2022, in the Roadrunner Room at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, 200 E. Picacho Ave.
