In a tribute to Arbor Day, photographers Diane Cook & Len Jenshel will share stunning photographs and the extraordinary stories of the trees featured in their current book, Wise Trees.

In a tribute to Arbor Day, photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel will speak about their book, Wise Trees.  Their project documents over 50 remarkable trees across 5 continents, trees that have witnessed great moments in history, survived catastrophic events, and nurtured spiritual connections.  Along with their stunning photographs, Cook and Jenshel will speak to the extraordinary stories these trees have to tell.

At a time when the planet is losing 40 million trees a day, Wise Trees seeks to reconnect humanity with the enduring roles trees play in sustaining life on Earth.  “Trees can live without us, but we cannot live without them,” say Cook and Jenshel. At this moment in time, when we are at a tipping point regarding climate change, Wise Trees makes an important statement about the crucial role that trees play in supporting life across the planet.

Ms. Cook and Mr. Jenshel will conclude their presentation with a brief preview of their new project on American Forests.  After the talk, there will be a book signing.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
