Klehm’s annual Botanica program is getting a makeover! New this year is a ticketed meet-and-greet at the Rockford Public Library's Nordlof Center where guests will have the opportunity to meet New York Times Bestselling author and this year’s Botanica keynote speaker, Kathryn Aalto, over wine and hors d’oeuvres.
After discussing Aalto’s book, “The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh: A Walk Through the Forest that Inspired the Hundred Acre Wood”, guests will enjoy a private showing of the 2018 Disney film, “Christopher Robin.”
