The museum will host a lecture by Sharon Biggs Waller, author of novels A Mad, Wicked Folly, The Forbidden Orchid (Viking), and Girls on the Verge (Holt). Heritage produce not only taste delicious but also have a storied past: the Trail of Tears bean was carried by Cherokees on their march to Oklahoma, and the Moon and Stars Watermelon was a long-lost variety re-discovered in a backyard. Heirlooms give us ways to experience what our ancestors collected and ate — living history at its best. Reservations recommended, and can be made online or at the museum.
