Maxine's book signing

Here is Maxine, my friend from exercise and dancing, signing her recent book, Missouri's Wild Mushrooms.  It's a beautiful book, which is a guide to hunting, identifying and cooking the state's most common mushrooms, by Maxine Stone.  It includes 24 delicious recipes, too !!
     The book is available at the Botanical Gardens shop and 
     Maxine is the past-president of the Missouri Mycological Society and serves on it's board of dierectors.  She is a passionate mycophile (someone who is fascinated by mushrooms), and loves studying and teaching mycology.   She is a Master Gardener with the Missouri Botanical Garden and is on the Master Gardener Advisory Board.  She is also a Master Naturalist with the Missouri Department of Conservation and is on the board of directors.
