I will be giving two talks about apples in the coming weeks:
New England Apple Orchards Past, Present, and Future
With an emphasis on western Massachusetts and native son John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed.
Tuesday, October 18
West Springfield Public Library Community Room
200 Park St., West Springfield, Massachusetts
Admission is free. Sponsored by the Ramapogue Historical Society.
A Guided Tour of New England Apples
A metaphorical walk through the orchard.
Tuesday, November 1
Florence H. Sweet Club House
44 Peck St., Attleboro, Massachusetts
The public is invited. Admission is $10. Sponsored by the Attleboro Garden Club.
I will answer questions and have apples for sampling at both events, plus copies of my books America’s Apple and Apples of New England for sale and signing, and the 2017 New England Apples wall calendar featuring orchard photographs by Bar Lois Weeks and me.
