Lurie Garden Book Club: Summer

Thu 20 Jul 2017

Join Lurie Garden staff as we discuss books with horticulture and ecology themes.

Join Lurie Garden staff as we discuss books with horticulture and ecology themes. Book club will meet in the south end of the garden. The summer book will be: The Nature Fix by Florence Williams.
For centuries, poets and philosophers extolled the benefits of a walk in the woods: Beethoven drew inspiration from rocks and trees; Wordsworth composed while tromping over the heath; and Nikola Tesla conceived the electric motor while visiting a park. Intrigued by our storied renewal in the natural world, Florence Williams set out to uncover the science behind nature’s positive effects on the brain.
