Talking about light at Lancaster Waterstones

Join us Wednesday 25th September at 6.30pm for an evening with the lovely Anna Levin who will be talking about her book 'INCANDESCENT'.

In Incandescent, journalist Anna Levin reveals her own fraught relationship with changes in lighting, and she explores its real impact on nature, our built environment, health and psychological well-being. We need to talk about light, urgently. And ask the critical question: just how bright is our future?

Tickets are £2 redeemable off the price of the book on the evening.

The Benmore Fernery

Description

by  Professor Mary Gibby

Discover the world of ferns with this illustrated guidebook from RBGE.

The Fernery at Benmore is a unique building, constructed for James Duncan at his Benmore estate in the early 1870's at the height of the Victorian fern craze. This wonderful little book provides an overview of the history of the Fernery and the project that was undertaken to restore it. In addition, it highlights the fern collections in the four RBGE gardens (Edinburgh, Benmore, Dawyck and Logan) and provides an overview of the native Scottish ferns.
