"When you have a Garden, you have
- France Hodgson Burnett
Meet Keri Wilt, Great-Great Granddaughter of Frances Hodgson Burnett -
I spent time in marketing and corporate sales for brands like Lego & Crayola, became a Mom, moved from the big city of Dallas to the Texas Hill Country, and then moonlighted as the head marketing chick for our restaurant/bar concept called Grape Juice that my husband and I built from scratch...but knew something was still missing.
Then I got tight with God, had my creative soul re-awakened at Lucky Star Art Camp on the banks of the Guadalupe River, read The Secret Garden (for the first time), and knew...
THIS WAS MY CALLING: To write.
After this Friday's performance of The Secret Garden, stick around in the lobby for a chance to meet and chat with Keri.
To write, INSPIRED by HER WORDS, about my REAL LIFE and HERS. The good, the bad, the funny, the smelly, the growth and the dirt... And to connect with those who might be inspired by our stories. It is my legacy to share Frances with the world. I know that now, but if I am honest with myself, I have always deep down known that. And not reading her books, kept me from having to own that.
She’s my Great-Great Grandmother, Frances Hodgson Burnett, a famous writer of memorable books like The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess and I’m a 40-something, mother of two, creative soul, stumbling through life with a pen in one hand and a garden spade in the other.
Visit us this Friday and you'll hear how the lessons of The Secret Garden can shine through in your life, too!
