April's Selection:
The Triumph of Seeds
by Thor Hanson


A Longwood Gardens Community Read 2019 Selection

We live in a world of seeds. From our morning toast to the cotton in our clothes, they are quite literally the stuff and staff of life: supporting diets, economies, and civilizations around the globe. Just as the search for nutmeg and pepper drove the Age of Discovery, coffee beans fueled the Enlightenment and cottonseed sparked the Industrial Revolution. Seeds are fundamental objects of beauty, evolutionary wonders, and simple fascinations.

Yet, despite their importance, seeds are often seen as commonplace, their extraordinary natural and human histories overlooked. Thanks to this stunning new book, they can be overlooked no more. This is a book of knowledge, adventure, and wonder, spun by an award-winning writer with both the charm of a fireside story-teller and the hard-won expertise of a field biologist. A fascinating scientific adventure, it is essential reading for anyone who loves to see a plant grow.

Click here to request the book online. We usually have copies on hold at the library, but as other libraries may be using it for their book groups, we might not have one available. Call us to check before you come in to get one.

Call (215) 679-2020 or email upvlibrary@comcast.net if you have any questions!
