Book Launch of Charles Darwin in Cambridge (Cancelled)

September 30, 2014

You are cordially invited to the launch of Charles Darwin in Cambridge: The Most Joyful Years by John van Wyhe on 30 September 2014 at 3.30pm - 4.30pm. (Cancelled due to illness)

This book reveals Darwin's time in Cambridge in unprecedented detail through newly discovered documents. The life of an undergraduate in Darwin’s time couldn’t be more different than it is today. And yet many of the customs and traditions of modern universities date back to this forgotten world of university life.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
