Book Discussion: The botany of desire: A plant’s-eye view of the world by Michael Pollan

Tuesday, February 28, 2017, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Manistique Room

In recognition of this year’s Common Theme, we offer an informal conversation about renowned “food” author Michael Pollan’s fascinating book linking four fundamental human desires—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato. Register to receive a free copy of the book and join our discussion. Refreshments provided.
