Poetry Workshop: Forms & Features: The Language of Plants and Flowers

November 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

All are welcome to a poetry discussion and creative writing workshop led by Maggie Queeney of the Poetry Foundation.

To celebrate fall in the Lurie Garden, we will read and discuss poetry that examines the language of plants and flowers, including the etymologies of species’ multiple names, and floriography, the coded messages composed of bouquets.

After spending time in the garden, participants will compose original poems that explore the many languages of plants and flowers. Space is limited, registration requested.


Your support is meaningful to the Lurie Garden’s continued efforts in providing free nature programs to the public.
