Amy Stewart’s talk at the Denver Botanic Gardens tomorrow night promises to be wicked good fun.
I’m looking forward to seeing Amy again tomorrow night at the DBG when she gives her talk called “Wicked Plants: The Deliciously Dark Side of the Plant World.”
I met Amy at a Garden Writers Association Symposium a couple of years ago right after her book called “Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities” hit the bestseller list.
This year, Amy has followed up her “Wicked Plants” book with a sequel called “Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon’s Army and Other Diabolical Insects.”
Amy’s been on the road promoting her new book and I can’t wait to hear what she has to say. She’s got some interesting perspectives on the world of horticulture that she also shares with other gardening types on the entertaining GardenRant blog.
Her talk is part of this year’s Bonfils-Stanton Series called “Talk to Me: The Connected Garden.” It’s been a great series of garden speakers starting with Suzi McCoy’s talk on “Gardening with a Purpose” and Mary Ann Newcomer’s presentation on “Why Heirloom Gardens Still Work Today.”
If you’re in the neighborhood on Thursday, I hope you’ll make plans to stop by, meet Amy, and join the conversation.
