Amy Stewart is the author of over a dozen books, including the Kopp Sisters novels and four New York Times bestsellers, one of which is Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities. Here she takes on Mother Nature’s most appalling creations; it’s an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, Stewart presents tales of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers.
Save the date of Wednesday, November 18 at 7 pm for this virtual presentation of what promises to be a fascinating evening of botanical mayhem. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required on Eventbrite.
