Botanical Shakespeare Lecture and Book Signing

Sunday October 15, 2017

Times: 1 pm

Shakespearean scholar and author Gerit Quealy will discuss her newly published book Botanical Shakespeare: an Illustrated Compendium of All the Flowers, Fruits, Herbs, Trees, Seeds, and Grasses Cited by the World’s Greatest Playwright.

Within this unique volume, Quealy includes a description and color botanical illustration by artist Sumié Hasegawa-Collins for each of the 170 plant references found throughout the Bard’s plays and poems. These, along with a foreword by Helen Mirren, makes this an enchanting work.

Lutenist Christopher Morrongiello will perform during the program. He will be joined by a soprano for two flower songs.

Following the lecture with Ms. Quealy, there will be a book signing in the Lenhardt Library and a viewing of associated volumes in the Rare Book Room. Copies of Botanical Shakespeare are available for purchase in the Garden Shop.
