The Ivy is delighted to present an evening with Arwen Donahue in celebration of her much-beloved book LANDINGS, which chronicles in gorgeous art and essays the life of her family farm over the course of a year. Join us on The Ivy patio, surrounded by the green of the gardens, for Arwen's reading and conversation with Kevin Miller of Real Food Farm in Baltimore.
More about the book: LANDINGS is a hybrid memoir/art book, with an introduction by New York Times Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver. In 130 ink-and-watercolor drawings, the story of one year on a family farm in Kentucky unfolds in captured moments of daily life: Donahue chopping wood, a cow sniffing her head, her daughter tending to goats after a hard day at school. Each visual is paired with a written reflection on the day’s doings, interwoven with the longer-arc history of her family, the farm, and their community. In telling the story of a farm family’s struggle to survive and thrive, Landings grapples with the legacy of our cultural divide between art and land and celebrates the beauty discovered along the way.
Arwen Donahue lives on a farm in Kentucky, where her family has raised produce for local markets for over 20 years. Her comics and graphic stories have been featured in LitHub, The Nib, The Rumpus, the Field Guide to Graphic Literature, and elsewhere. She has received grants from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, the Kentucky Foundation for Women, the Kentucky Humanities Council, and an Al Smith Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council.
Kevin Miller is an Educator and Urban Farmer based in East Baltimore. Formerly an English Teacher in Baltimore City Public Schools, Miller now manages Real Food Farm, a non-profit urban farm that helps feed the residents of Baltimore and train its future farmers.
