Nature’s Narratives is the Scott Arboretum’s monthly book discussion group. Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers to discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment.

This month’s selection is Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History by Stephen Jay Gould. The Burgess Shale is a treasure trove of information about evolution. Gould explores it and shows the reader this fascinating ancient world. 

Participants are encouraged, but not required, to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion. Discussions are led by Elizabeth Haegele and participants are welcome to share or simply listen.
