Find a Great Novel at Your Local Botanical Garden

signatureofallthings

 

This just in:  On Friday Sept. 6, five botanical gardens will be hiding copies of Elizabeth Gilbert’s new novel, “The Signature of All Things,” all across their grounds.

The participating gardens will be: New Jersey Skylands, Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, Coral Gables Botanical Gardens, New York Botanical Gardens and the San Francisco Botanical Gardens, and on Sept 13 -15, the St. Louis Botanical Garden will join in.

The novel comes out in October, but I read an advance copy and will be running an interview with Elizabeth in a few weeks.  It’s a beautiful, sprawling, epic novel of botanical exploration that is sure to be on every gardener’s Christmas list this year.

So.  More coming soon on the book, but meanwhile, if you’re in one of these cities, here are links to find more information about the book hunt.  Get over there!

    I saw the title of the book, and before reading any further I immediately thought that the fascinating theory of signatures in medicinal plants would be a great idea for a post. Gilbert found the idea worthy of a novel so she is way ahead of me. I can’t wait to read it.
