Longwood Gardens Community Read

This winter and spring we join local libraries and community partners for the seventh year of Longwood Gardens Community Read! This year, we ask readers to push the boundaries of what they thought they knew and dive into the wacky, weird, and wild world of plants. The three books this year are:

Semiosis by Sue Burke, for adults and young adults.
• Weird Plants by Chris Thorogood, for middle-grade readers.
The Enormous Potato retold by Audrey Davis, for children. 

Participating Delaware County libraries will hold programs in the coming months based on the Community Read books. Find all three books at your local library by clicking on the highlighted titles above. For more information about Community Read, click here.
