    Victoria Johnson, American Eden: David Hosack, Botany, and Medicine in the Garden of the Early Republic
    Event Description:
    This illustrated lecture by author and historian Victoria Johnson features her new book, American Eden, which both the Wall Street Journal and Ron Chernow (Alexander Hamilton) have called “captivating.” When Dr. David Hosack tilled the nation’s first public botanical garden in the Manhattan soil more than 200 years ago, he didn’t just dramatically alter the New York landscape; he left a monumental legacy of advocacy for public health and wide-ranging support for the sciences. Today, his former garden is the site of Rockefeller Center.

    Join Victoria Johnson as she eloquently chronicles Hosack’s tireless career to reveal the breadth of his impact. The result is a lush portrait of the man who gave voice to a new, deeply American understanding of the powers and perils of nature. American Eden has been named a finalist for the 2018 National Book Award in nonfiction. American Eden will be available for purchase on site.

    This lecture is made possible thanks to a gracious gift given by Marie Louise and Eugene Jackson.
