Apples: A New England History

The Harvard Museum of Natural History welcomes Rowan Jacobsen, Author; Knight Science Journalism Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

No other fruit embodies the horticultural and cultural range of the apple. Originally from the mountains of Kazakhstan, apples have seduced bees, intoxicated monks, nourished colonists, and inspired artists, from Paul Cézanne to Rudolf Blaschka, who created Harvard’s collection of botanically precise glass apples (now on view in the Glass Flowers gallery). James Beard Award-winning author, Rowan Jacobsen, will discuss his book, Apples of Uncommon Character, and will explore the surprising ways in which the apple has shaped New England history. A tasting of heirloom ciders from Vermont’s Eden Specialty Ciders will follow the talk.

Advance registration required. Event is 21+. Book your free admission tickets here.
