Underground Lovers NSW Book Launch with Alison Pouliot

Wed 10 May at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Once overlooked, fungi are the exhilarating new poster organisms reconfiguring our understanding of the natural word world & capturing the public imagination. Underground Lovers is a captivating journey into the sensory realms of fungi. It’s told through first-hand stories – from the Australian desert to Iceland’s glaciers to America’s Cascade Mountains where we encounter glowing ghost fungi & lobster fungi.
The book presents new questions & insights about fungi but is also an intimate celebration of their astonishing beauty & complexity. It melds science & personal reflection to explore overlooked themes, among them fungi & fire, climate change, aesthetics, fungi in ecosystem restoration, fungi & indigenous wisdom.

Join for the NSW launch of Underground Lovers to hear some stories from Alison’s adventures during the writing of Underground Lovers
Cost: $20.00 includes drinks & nibbles proceeds go to Friends Orange Botanic Gardens
