Primrose Author Talk
Author Elizabeth Lawson will present a FREE talk on her book "Primrose", a volume in the Botanical Series produced by Reaktion, a London-based publisher. Each volume covers the social and cultural history of a group of plants, as well as botanical and horticultural aspects. Primroses are perhaps best known from Shakespeare’s phrase “the primrose path,” which appeared in Hamlet. Many horticulturalists put primroses in the short list of great garden genera, along with roses and lilies.
Elizabeth Lawson received her BA in English Literature from Bryn Mawr College, an MA in Botany from the University of Texas at Austin, a PhD in Plant Biology from Cornell University, and an MFA in Nonfiction from Southern New Hampshire University. She has worked at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and completed a decade of work each for the Botanical Society of America and the Ecological Society of America, and completed her career with another decade of work in the Writing Department at Ithaca College, where she taught Professional Writing, Academic Writing, Writing in the Workplace, Personal Essay, Science Writing, Technical Writing, and Writing as a Naturalist. She now works fulltime as a freelance writer and can be visited at www.elizabethwinpennylawson.com.
