A number of years ago, Eugenia Bone spoke at our winter luncheon. She is a dynamic speaker, an author, journalist, and former president of the New York Mycological Society. She is coming back to St. Louis on Monday, October 15 and will present to MOMS members and friends a talk called The Kitchen Mycologist, how a little mycology can make you a better mushroom cook.
The talk will be at 7:00 PM in the Garden room at Ridgway Center (the visitor center) at the Missouri Botanical Garden at 4344 Shaw Blvd.
The Garden is co-sponsoring the talk. I will get there at 6:30 to welcome you.
Please RSVP to Jan Simons at firstname.lastname@example.org / 314-773-4551. Reservations are required to ensure adequate seating. Eugenia will bring copies of her books, Mycophilia and Microbia, her new book about microbiology, to sell. The books are $20 each, cash or check. Please let me know if you think you might be interested in a copy of either book.
No outside food or drink except water.
Explore the Garden through the lens of microorganisms with nationally renowned nature and food writer Eugenia Bone. This talk will compare the microbiomes of plants and people and gardens and families, and will show how life on earth is more interconnected than you could ever imagine. Book signing to follow.
