Join the larger Longwood community of readers to hear Lab Girl author Hope Jahren relate her own experiences and growth as a plant scientist. In our Community Read capstone event, Hope will share her truly inspirational journey, with plenty of opportunity for your questions. Colvin Randall, Longwood’s P.S. du Pont Fellow and Historian, will start the evening by offering insights about one of our founders, Alice du Pont, and her role in developing Longwood’s unique character and plant collections.

Following the talk and questions, join us for a book signing and opportunity to chat further informally. A light dessert reception in the Conservatory sweetens the fun.
