Teri Dunn Chace – Seeing Flowers – Discover the Hidden Life of Flowers

February 21, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

An engrossing, narrated hour-long talk based on her best-selling Timber Press title of the same name. Learn why flowers look and behave the way they do, why certain plants are placed in certain families, how flowers attract pollinators and how pollination works. She also regales the audience with some amazing and entertaining stories from the era of plant hunters. Savor the breathtaking photographs by Robert Llewellyn (she will explain his “image-stacking” technique).


With a broad range of expertise and interests, Teri has a taste for exploration and a talent for bringing backstories and information that resonate with insight and wonder—whether she’s examining flowers, pie, or small-town life.

She has over 35 books in publication, including the 2016 AHS award-winner Seeing Seeds. She’s also written and edited for major consumer gardening/outdoor-living publications (Horticulture, North American Gardener, Backyard Living, Birds and Blooms) and is presently the garden-and-nature columnist for the award-winning “Bottom Line Personal” newsletter.

Also an experienced copywriter, she’s written up products ranging from pet supplies to roses to outdoor-living products/furnishings to scented candles and soaps. Her copy for Jackson & Perkins gained the industry’s highest award, The Catalog Age Gold Award.

She has written and edited for the leading roadside-travel magazine and website, Roadside, on topics ranging from “Why Greeks and Diners?” to urban-planning issues to comfort-food recipes to iconic on-the-road books.

Raised in Santa Barbara, California and educated at Bard College in New York, she currently resides in a small village in the heart of central New York’s farm country; she and her husband also have a second home on a small island off the southwest coast of Nova Scotia.

The most intriguing job she’s ever held? Monitoring rare turtles for The Nature Conservancy. Or. . . raising teenage boys.
