Flowers in Fiction
- That will be our theme. We
will gather once a month May thru September to discuss a piece of
literature that makes use of the world of flowers.
Whether growing wild or in a garden, for pleasure or poison, as
background or sanctuary we will choose a novel that encourages our own
setting - the Shirley G. Cross
Wildflower Garden - and stimulate a deeper appreciation for the
botanical leitmotif in literature.
