READING CIRCLE TO DISCUSS “THE BOTANY OF DESIRE” AT THE NEWPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY

The Newport Library Reading Circle will meet on Tuesday, March 8 at 12:00 p.m. to discuss The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World by Michael Pollan. Pollan demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a reciprocal relationship. He links four fundamental human desires — sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control — with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato.

The Reading Circle is free and open to the public. Participants are welcome to eat lunch during the program. For more information, please call (541) 265-2153 or check the library’s website, www.newportlibrary.org
