Wednesday Wisdom - APPLES & EVES

  • Kimball Jenkins Estate 266 North Main Street Concord, NH, 03301 United States (map)

Wednesday Wisdom
Speaker - Anny Jones


“as the sweetapple reddens on a high branch

             high on the highest branch and the applepickers forgot-

 no, not forgot: were unable to reach”
                  (a fragment of Sappho translated by Anne Carson)

Did Eve really eat an apple? Did Johnny Appleseed really scatter apple seeds? What's so American about apple pie?

What is it about apples that has entranced the imagination of painters & poets, cooks & theologians?

Wednesday Wisdom is held on the second Wednesday of each month. Our goal is to bring fascinating speakers to a diverse group of greater Concord residents.

This is a pot luck and BYO (wine, beer or other drinks).
