THE SCOTT ARBORETUM OF SWARTHMORE COLLEGE

Nature's Narratives

Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives” is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum where readers come together to discuss a book once a month and share in the reading experience.

The discussions are free and open to the public. Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion. Refreshments and coffee will be provided.

Books will not be supplied, but one copy of each is available in the Scott Horticultural Library for check-out and members of the Scott Arboretum enjoy lending priviledges. Register online or call 610-328-8025.
