Longwood and our community partners—gardens, museums, conservation organizations, and public libraries—are proud to offer the ninth year of our Community Read, through which we encourage reading for pleasure and starting conversations. This year, we ask readers to explore the concept of trees as nature’s great connectors, and how trees may help us gain insight into ourselves and our place in the world through three books: The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature’s Great Connectors by David George Haskell, We Planted a Tree by Diane Muldrow, and Canopy Career Chronicles by the team at the Morton Arboretum (Illinois).
Get a head start on the Community Read by reading the eBook version of these books, available for free through our Members-only eBook collection! All you need to log in is your Membership number found on the back of your Membership card. After you’ve logged in, you can download books to your device or read them online.
