A former tree

‘This Book Was a Tree,’ by former Wiltonian Marcie Cuff, is written for engaged, active, environmentally minded folks, she says. ‘It is a self-help book on how to slow down and reconnect with the real world. Though it covers the science behind local and global environmental issues, the writing is fun and quirky, and the projects within it are simple and green,’ she said, adding it is not a children’s book, ‘it’s more of a funky grownup book for creative people.’ The book will be published this month by Perigee/Penguin.
