Foraging With Jeeves & Other Offbeat Mycological Excursions: An Author Talk with Lawrence Millman (in person and on Zoom)
October 15 @ 2:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
The book Foraging With Jeeves & Other Offbeat Mycological Excursions by Lawrence Millman defies any known genre, just as fungi often tend to defy our attempts to identify them. Think science (the Salem witchcraft fungus) followed by satire (a fungal Faust) followed by an account of what sort of fungi one might find in Antarctica. An element of humor pervades the book’s pages, as indicated by a remark one of its characters, the butler Jeeves, makes to his master: “Wit and mycology go together, sir.”
Author and Arctic explorer Lawrence Millman has written 18 books, including such titles as Our Like Will Not Be There Again, Last Places, Hiking to Siberia, At the End of the World, Fascinating Fungi of New England, Fungipedia, and Goodbye, Ice from Coyote Arts. He is also a contributor to Thoreau Farm’s book: What Would Henry Do? Volume II. He has visited Henry’s grave more times than he’s visited either his mother’s or his father’s graves. He lives in Cambridge.
