We’re teaming up with the world-famous Mütter Museum of The College of the Physicians of Philadelphia for an evening in celebration of one of the most fascinating objects on earth: seeds. Join fellow readers and botany aficionados alike to hear Triumph of Seeds author Thor Hanson and Jacqui Bowman, Ph.D, share their thoughts on how these tiny marvels have shaped human history.

As America’s finest museum of medical history and a historic national landmark, the Mütter displays beautifully preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models, and medical instruments in a 19th-century setting. Contained within the collections are some unexpected examples demonstrating the relationship between humans and seeds including a collection of 15th century herbals and the Benjamin Rush Medicinal Plant Garden.

A light wine and cheese reception with a book signing follow.
