Pt. Loma resident Veronica Marshall worked for a publisher while studying architecture in college and after graduation began assembling book collections in conjunction with architectural shows, Christmas bazaars and for individual authors who were making local appearances, including Julia Child and the late Ray Bradbury. Her books have been a perennial favorite at the flower show and include garden books for professionals or those just starting out, kids’ nature books, outdoor and indoor entertaining and, her overall theme this year, “books on spring.” Interspersed among the volumes are floral scarves and floral pendants.
