The Language of Flowers

April 2018 Book Club: The Language of Flowers

In Victorian times, flowers had romantic meanings and a language all their own: dahlia – dignity; lily – majesty; begonia – caution! The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh is about a girl whose lifelong distrust and detachment from others left her with her beloved flowers as her only way to communicate. This story is about trust, love, redemption, and finding marvelous, unknown gifts you didn’t know you had. (And learning about flowers? What could be better for this spring season?!) Join us as we read and discuss The Language of Flowers on Instagram @larsbookclub! Stay tuned throughout the month, readers! We’ll have discussion questions and amazing artwork for you. Enjoy!
