Our poetry book, In the Tree, featuring poems by Kim Hyung-Young and edited by Prof. Chan Park, had the honor of contributing to the OSU Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens (CA&LG) annual Arbor Day Event, called "A Celebration of Trees."

The event took place right outside Hagerty Hall, Friday, April 25th on the Oval where the CA & LG dedicated three new trees to the oval and conducted their annual honoree event.

In front of 50+ attendees including honorees, volunteers, FOD licensed arboriculturists, OSU Tree Campus Committee members, and CA &LG faculty, staff, and their family members, Mary Malone, the director of the Chadwick Arboretum, presented our book of Korean Poems, "a little advertisement" she said, "from the Ku Sang Memorial poet who wrote a book called In The Tree, and featured during this, Arbor Day, in the delightful little store there in Hagerty run by Lauren Barrett." She continued, "I am presenting our first honoree today with this book."
