Program Room

Explore Shakespearean gardens in the UK and the US and celebrate the flowers, herbs, and trees immortalized by the Bard. Presented by garden historian Lesley Parness.

History's greatest playwright was also one heck of a gardener. The age of Elizabeth I provided William Shakespeare with a rich and varied plant palette, both from England' s considerable bounty and foreign introductions. The list of plants employed by the Bard is long and speaks to his deep knowledge of horticulture and herbalism. Explore Shakespearean gardens in the UK and the US, learn their basic design components and celebrate the flowers, herbs, and trees immortalized by Shakespeare. Turns out, the world's not only a stage, it's also a garden! Presented by garden historian Lesley Parness.

Will you need a special accommodation (including food allergy if applicable to the program)? If so, please contact the library and provide at least two weeks notice prior to the event date and the library will make every effort to honor all requests.
