Overview of The Secret Garden from the Samuel French Inc. website
Mary Lennox, a sullen and spoiled young orphan, is sent to live with her brooding uncle at gloomy Misselthwaite Manor. Discovering a hidden, neglected garden, Mary plants the seeds of new life for all those drawn into her secret refuge. A wonderful story of transformation, from the author of the immensely popular Anne of Green Gables.
Congratulations to the artists of the eight GRACE artworks that placed in the GFWC State Art Competition. This is the final GFWC Art Competition and includes the best artworks from the State of North Carolina. All contestants in the State Competition had advanced by previously placing first or second in the Raleigh Competition and the District VI Competition. What an accomplishment!
