With Jonathan Drori

(Recorded June 8, 2021)

Join us for a lively conversation with environmentalist and bestselling author Jonathan Drori to celebrate the release of his newly-published book, Around the World in 80 Plants. This is a journey of discovery that explores ways plants have evolved through the ages, and their often surprising relationships with humans.

Through a blend of science, history, and folklore, Drori reveals little-known and recently discovered facts about plants, from the familiar to the mysterious, and shares tales of some that have ignited human creativity and enabled civilizations to flourish.
