Hear from author Thor Hanson as he discusses his journey through the world of seeds and their extraordinary impact on the world. Hanson will be joined by Floral Director of Fiesta Parade Floats Jim Hynd, who will discuss the intricate designs and elaborate use of seeds, seed pods, and flowers in the designs of the world-famous floats for the Tournament of Roses Parade.

Following the talk, join us for a book signing with Hanson and an opportunity to continue the conversation in an informal setting. A light dessert reception in the Conservatory sweetens the fun.
