April Book Club: Seven Flowers and How They Shaped our World

April Book Club bookA new month means a new book! In our world today, we have the ability to view, enjoy, or seek out any flower we wish to beautify our homes or bestow as a gift. But these flowers didn’t always exist on our home shores, wherever that may be. They came from foreign lands near and far; they were discovered and dissected, revered and reproduced. Seven Flowers and How They Shaped our World by Jennifer Potter explores a handful of flowers that became religious icons, status symbols, metaphors for emotions and matters of the heart, and so much more. They infiltrated poetry and the arts, and even created financial frenzies! Read along as we discover the origins of the Lotus, Lily, Sunflower, Opium Poppy, Rose, Tulip, and Orchid. Jennifer Potter masterfully uncovers how these beautiful plants changed our world and what they tell us about ourselves. Find the book here and follow us on our @larsbookclub Instagram! We’ll post daily quotes or highlights from April Book Club, and we’d love to hear your thoughts!
