Saturday, April 6 at 11 a.m. William Logan plans to sign and discuss his book “Sprout Lands: Tending the Endless Gifts of Trees.” Once, farmers knew how to make a living hedge and fed their flocks on tree-branch hay. Rural people knew how to prune hazel to foster abundance: both of edible nuts, and of straight, strong, flexible rods for bridges, walls, and baskets. Townspeople cut their beeches to make charcoal to fuel ironworks. Shipwrights shaped oaks to make hulls. No place could prosper without its inhabitants knowing how to cut their trees so they would sprout again. “Sprout Lands” is seasoned arborist William Bryant Logan’s account of the lost traditions that sustained human life for ten millennia.

Then at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Daniel Cantor Yalowitz is discussing and signing “Journeying With Your Archetypes: The Search for Deeper Meaning in Daily Life” in which he takes readers on a personal tour: a narrated and curated adventure into the land of C.G. Jung’s psychology, focusing on his conceptions of archetype. This useful and insightful book can offer a deeper understanding of the arc and meaning of one’s life. Daniel is a trained developmental and intercultural psychologist, educator, global citizen, and activist who has journeyed into and through 88 countries to date. He has lectured widely on Jungian themes and taught courses focusing on Jung’s work at the undergraduate and graduate levels for more than three decades.
