Chip Womick coverASHEBORO – What happens when an elderly woman grows too frail plant her garden as usual, and the balance in the world shifts from beauty to ugliness?

Womick also will answer audience questions.

It’s free and all ages are invited.

The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6804.
