Amy Stewart’s Flower Confidential
We just placed an interview with author Amy Stewart on to AbeBooks.com. She has penned a book called Flower Confidential – an insight into flowers, or rather the cut flowers you buy from florists and supermarkets. Amy’s been getting plenty of attention – the New York Times reviewed her book several weeks ago. She’s in the middle of a booktour with appearances in California still to come – see the bottom of this article for dates and venues.
The book is definitely worth a read. I can’t say I’ve ever considered where flowers come from – I go into the store,Â buy them and walk away. Amy reveals that those flowers have probably travelled thousands of miles by plane before arriving in your local florist. Also this book has a beautiful cover.
