Area bookworms are invited to join Delaware Valley University students, faculty and staff during the spring semester to discuss books that explore the human connection to plants. This spring, the club will be discussing four books related to the intersections of plants, people and history. The discussions will be led by Assistant Professor of Plant Science Dr. Sarah Dohle and Electronic and Instructional Services Librarian Karen Sheldon. The group is open to the public at no cost.
