Longwood Gardens Community Read

This winter and spring we join local libraries and community partners for the sixth year of Longwood Gardens Community Read! This year, we continue our journey into the science of the plant world by going back to where it all started … seeds. The three books this year are:
The Triumph of Seeds: How Grains, Nuts, Kernels, Pulses, & Pips Conquered the Plant Kingdom and Shaped Human History by Thor Hanson, for adults and young adults.
• Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman, for middle-grade readers.
• The Reason for a Flower by Ruth Heller, for children. 

Participating Delaware County libraries will hold programs in the coming months based on the Community Read books. Find both books at your local library by clicking on the highlighted titles above. At each program, patrons will receive ticket vouchers for free admission to Longwood Gardens.
