Botany of Desire is the University Book Club Selection for February.

The University Book Club selection for February is The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan. The book will be discussed on Tuesday, February 9th at 6:45. Where? High above the Edinboro Campus in Room 715 of the Baron-Froness Library. Refreshments will be served.

Working in his garden one day, Michael Pollan hit pay dirt in the form of an idea: do plants, he wondered, use humans as much as we use them? While the question is not entirely original, the way Pollan examines this complex coevolution by looking at the natural world from the perspective of plants is unique. The result is a fascinating and engaging look at the true nature of domestication. ( review)
