There will be a free Zoom lecture on Friday, October 9, 2020 at 1:00 pm EDT called: “Poppyganda: The Historical & Social Impact of a Flower.” The Poppy is an enduring symbol of WWI; however, the poppy’s association with warfare predates 1914, and its legacy is still evolving. Dr. Mathew Leonard is a modern conflict archeologist at the University of Bristol in the UK. In 2015 he published his book entitled Poppyganda, in which he tells the story of the ‘flower of remembrance’ up to the present day. To register for this free event, click here.
