Enjoy a lively discussion with orchid experts and storytellers over drinks and food. Ira will host an informal panel discussion with Marc Hachadourian, curator of the
orchid collection at the The New York Botanical Garden, and Susan Orlean, journalist and author of The Orchid Thief, as well as a screening of the Science Friday video Sex, Lies, and Orchids.
