As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
American Eden: David Hosack, Botany and Medicine in the Garden of the Early Republic, by Award-winning historian and author Victoria Johnson
Johnson will deliver the 2019 John Dwyer Public Lecture at 4 p.m. today in the Shoenberg Auditorium at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Johnson’s illustrated lecture features her new book, American Eden, which both the Wall Street Journal and Ron Chernow, author of Alexander Hamilton, have called “captivating.” David Hosack established the nation's first public botanical garden, including plants from South America, Asia and Australia, in the early 1800s. Today, his former garden is the site of Rockefeller Center.
