‘Flower of Empire’

At the Bridgehampton Community House

    “The Flower of Empire,” an illustrated talk by Tatiana Holway, author of a book by the same name, will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Bridgehampton Community House. Published last April, Ms. Holway’s book describes the 1837 discovery in Guiana of a giant Amazonian water lily that influenced botany, industry, culture, and empire in Victorian England.  Admission is $10, free for members, and refreshments will be provided.
