To date, Kincaid has had ten books published along with work in several magazines; in addition, she's edited short story collections, produced the film Life and Debt and taught at Harvard as a visiting professor of creative writing. While her fiction is full of fury, her garden writing imparts a much gentler spirit. This sweeter voice is perhaps the reason that her three garden works My Favorite Plant, My Garden (Book) and Among Flowers: A Walk in the Himalayas are some of her most critically acclaimed efforts. Tonight she'll speak on "The Writer in the Garden: The Garden as Metaphor and Paradox" as part of the Denver Botanic Gardens Bonfils-Stanton lecture series. The 7 p.m. event will be held in Mitchell Hall at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1005 York Street. Tickets are $17 for members, $22 for non-members in advance, and $25 at the door.
