We've just heard from Andrea Wulf, author of The Brother Gardeners. Botany, Empire and the Birth of an Obsession. She's got a new book coming out and, because she's based in London, she asked us to help get the word out about the US book tour for her new book. She's booking dates now and would love to hear from garden clubs, botanical gardens, and other groups who would like to be included on the book tour. I'll let her tell it:
The lovely people from GardenRant gave me this space to let you know about my lecture tour on my forthcoming book The Founding Gardeners. The Revolutionary Generation, Nature and the Shaping of the American Nation which will be published by Knopf in spring 2011.
The Founding Gardeners looks at the revolutionary generation from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners, plantsmen and farmers. It tells the story of the American founding fathers and how their attitude to nature, gardens and agriculture shaped the American nation.
I had so much fun during my last book tour in the States (on my last book “The Brother Gardeners”) that I
will stay for three months this time. I will be in the States from April to June 2011 – so if you are interested in me giving a talk at your garden club or botanic garden (or any other organization) please contact me on aw (at) andreawulf.com for information on dates, costs and the talk.
For testimonials about my lectures see my website.
