Your Place to Belong: A Susan Orlean, Author of the Year Program

In 1994, Laroche and three Seminole Indians- Dennis Osceola, Vinson Osceola, and Russell Bowers- were arrested with rare orchids they had stolen from a wild swamp in south Florida that is filled with some of the world’s most extraordinary plants and trees. Laroche had planned to clone the orchids and then sell them for a small fortune to impassioned collectors. After he was caught in the act, Laroche set off one of the oddest legal controversies in recent memory, which brought together environmentalists, Native American activists, and devoted orchid collectors. The result is a tale that is strange, compelling, and hilarious.
