Irucka Embry supports pollinators during Pollinator Week
at his Family Book Signing, Photo Exhibit, and Presentations Event
Irucka would like you to be able to provide this needed habitat too. Thus, he will be distributing free literature on pollinators and free pollinator conservation seeds from Roundstone Native Seed Company during his family's A Night to Remember: A Multi–generational Family Book Signing, Photo Exhibit and Presentations on Wednesday, 17 June 2015, from 6 PM – 8 PM at the West End United Methodist Church at 2200 West End Avenue, 37203 (across from Vanderbilt University). This event is occurring during Pollinator Week 2015.
In addition to providing the free information and seeds, Irucka will be selling postcards featuring pollinators, selling organic and/or heirloom starter seedlings, and he will be discussing his book, Balancing the Rift: ReCONNECTualizing the Pasenture, which mentions making pollinator–friendly gardens and provides resources for learning more about pollinators.
Irucka has brought in other members of his talented family for this event. Some family authors will be signing and selling their books and providing a photo exhibit and spirited presentations.
We will have twin brothers Irucka (Nashville) and Obiora Embry (Lexington, KY); their mother, Dr. Deborah Mapp–Embry (Louisville, KY); their aunt, Ivy Barksdale (Lexington, KY); their father, Jim Embry (Richmond, KY) and their grandfather, James Mapp (Chattanooga)
The event begins at 6 PM with a delicious dinner prepared by Chef Martha Stamps and her staff. The cost of this dinner is $12 for adults and $6 for children under 10. Please RSVP for the dinner by calling (615) 983–8850 or e–mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Around 6:45 PM Irucka's family will read and give short presentations. This part of the program is free and open to the public.
