Jonathan Drori Discussing His Acclaimed Book: AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TREES
On Tuesday, April 23, TEDTalk speaker, multitalented tree expert, and sustainability advocate Jonathan Drori will visit The Music Hall as part of its Innovation + Leadership series to share AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TREES, his scientifically-grounded love letter to the fascinating organisms that support life as we know it. The book’s strange and true tales—populated by self-mummifying monks, tree-climbing goats, and ever-so-slightly radioactive nuts—are illustrated by World Illustration Award nominee Lucille Clerc, taking the reader on a journey that is as informative as it is beautiful.
The 7 pm event includes an author presentation and Q&A, plus a post-event book signing and meet-and-greet. It will be held at The Music Hall Loft at 131 Congress St., in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Jonathan Drori is a Trustee of The Eden Project, an Ambassador for the World Wide Fund for Nature, and was for nine years a Trustee of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Gardens, and The Woodland Trust. In 2006 he was made CBE by H. M. The Queen. He is also a highly sought after speaker in the UK, and his US presence continues to grow.
