We will be celebrating the launch of L: 50 Objects, Stories & Discoveries from the Linnean Society of London. Written by staff, curators and Fellows of the Linnean Society, the book showcases 50 of the Society’s well-known and rarer treasures, including books, manuscripts, specimens and artwork dating from the late 15th century to today.

Please come to celebrate along side and listen to short stories behind these treasures from our beloved curators and Fellows and staff members:

Stephanie Holt: Natural History Museum, London

Mark Spencer: Hon. Curator (Botany)

David Lowther : Durham University

This event includes a lively discussion with our staff members Dr Isabelle Charmantier, Head of Collections, and Leonie Berwick, Special Publications Manager.
