Excerpts from several emails from the lovely Kimberley Zimmerman in America, dating from April 2013. (Apologies to all, I have been swamped with personal projects and, as you may know, the website has been transferred from one host to another, so I wasn’t able to post items for some time.)
What struck me most about Kimberly’s messages is the connection between the past and the present. She was also kind enough to offer to donate towards a future reprint of Please Plant This Book. If you’re interested in this happening again in the UK, do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are two links to the Please Plant This Book project that the Brautigan Book Club produced in conjunction with the inaugural Dinefwr Literature Festival in 2012 (Link ONE and link TWO), showing some behind the scenes photos of us making the books, and a little about the history of the project.
“I happened upon your website recently and was delighted to find that you had reprinted Brautigan’s Please Plant This Book.
The text of Please Plant This Book is so close to my heart as I am a pediatrician and Brautigan so perfectly captures the importance of nurturing our children, providing them with nutritious food and a healthy (in many ways…..) future.
