About this event

In 2007, Amy Stewart published Flower Confidential, an around-the-world, behind-the-scenes look at the global flower industry. The book became an instant New York Times bestseller.

One of the florists Amy interviewed for the book was Teresa Sabankaya of Bonny Doon Garden Company. Teresa's garden-grown, seasonal, sentimental arrangements spoke to a bygone era of floristry--but she's also a forward-thinking innovator in the floral world.

In 2019, Teresa published a gorgeous book of her own, The Posy Book: Garden-Inspired Bouquets That Tell a Story.

Join Amy and Teresa for a chat about their books, their shared love of flowers, and a behind-the-scenes look at how the flower business really operates.
