Event: American Eden: From Monticello to Central Park to our Backyards, What Our Gardens Tell Us About Who We Are with Wade Graham

In Conversation with WADE GRAHAM on American Eden: From Monticello to Central Park to our Backyards, What Our Gardens Tell Us About Who We Are

Thursday, June 14
12:00 noon to 1:00 pm
Seaver classroom 3, The Huntington Library

Wade Graham explores what four hundred years of garden making in America reveal about our values, politics, and dreams, and how our evolving relationship with Nature in our gardens forms a unique window onto the continuing process of fashioning a national identity in his newly-published book, American Eden: From Monticello to Central Park to our Backyards, What Our Gardens Tell Us About Who We Are (HarperCollins 2011). This social history of gardens in America is an expansive and penetrating exploration of how our evolving relationships with our gardens and landscapes have reflected our national identity over the course of time.
