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.
After two years on Long Island, NJ William Cobbett, an English journalist, wrote The American Gardener. Out of print since 1856, the Modern Library Gardening series has reprinted this practical garden guide writen in beautiful prose.
The discussions are free and open to the public. Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion.
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 privileges. Call to register 610-328-8025. Limited to 12.
