This Wild Life: Heroines in the History of Botany 1650-1850 With author Lucretia Weems

September 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Free

Lucretia Weems, author of “The Wild Life: Heroines in the History of Botany 1650-1850,” will be at Bloomsbury Books 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11.

From encounters with pirates and historic earthquakes to visits from the Queen, the women in these pages led amazing lives. Each was a true heroine who contributed dramatically to plant knowledge before the word botany even existed. They explored, collected and propagated plants alongside a large majority of men, their endeavors often barely acknowledged and their names forgotten.

Adventure, courage, intelligence and determination marked each life. Here are their stories, that we may celebrate these women and their accomplishments.
