Title: Apples: Immortal and Forbidden Fruit


Speaker: Erika Janik


Description: The apple's story is, as Henry David Thoreau observed, remarkably "connected with that of man." Born in the mountains of Kazakhstan, apples have traveled the globe and become a species at home nearly everywhere. The apple did such a convincing job in America that many Americans wrongly assume the fruit is a native. Enmeshed in the folklore and history of nations around the globe, apples have been associated with love, beauty, luck, health, comfort, pleasure, wisdom, temptation, sensuality, and fertility—and all this in addition to being just good eating and drinking. Follow the apple from Asia to Europe, Africa, Australia, and the Americas and discover how this remarkable fruit conquered the world.


Speaker's bio: Erika Janik writes about food, history, and travel. Her work has appeared in Midwest Living, Mental Floss, Wisconsin Trails, the Wisconsin Magazine of History, Madison Magazine, and other newspapers and magazines. She's also the author of three books and is a talk show producer at Wisconsin Public Radio. Learn more at erikajanik.net.
