Longtime Kansas City Star columnist Mike Hendricks and his wife, local blogger Roxie Hammill, discuss their new book Mike and Roxie's Vegetable Paradise on Wednesday, February 24, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

The book serves as both a how-to manual and a memoir based on the authors' 25 years of gardening in the Kansas City area and offers tips on how readers can save money and take charge of what they eat by growing their own food in their own backyard.

The event is co-sponsored by the KC Center for Urban Agriculture.

Admission is free. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the event. Free parking is available in the Library District parking garage at 10th & Baltimore.

Mike and Roxie's Vegetable Paradise will be available for sale and the authors will sign copies purchased during the event.
