Stacy Stoldt of the Chicago Botanic Garden is a rare book specialist and a true gem of information in the world of horticulture. As luck would have it, we had a fascinating chat back in November of last year. Stacy gave me a glimpse into her work as a librarian at the Botanic Garden and we also discussed one of the exhibitions she curated about the Victorian Fern Craze.

If you are convinced that the world would be a better place with just a few more ferns - you’ll love hearing Stacy chat with me about one of evolution's stalwart survivors: ferns.
