Listening to poetry on the porch during our Frenchtown Celebration

Listening to poetry on the porch during our Frenchtown Celebration

RobCarolineRobert Rando of Annandale and Caroline Scutt of Frenchtown became caretakers of the Garden in August of 2012. Robert and Caroline both have a passion for their community and met while serving on the board of trustees for Hunterdon County United Way. The two share many other interests including their love for literature.  One-thing-led-to-another which led to The Book Garden and a business partnership.

Community remains at the core of everything we do at The Book Garden – book clubs, author visits, writing workshops, fundraisers – whatever we do, we want to make sure you, our neighbors, our community are a part of our ongoing Celebration of Stories!

We hope you will join us!
