AX Reading Series: Hardy Apples with Bob Osborne and Beth Powning

September 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm America/Moncton

Sunday, September 25, 2:00 p.m.

In-person AX Gallery.

Cost: Free, donations encouraged.

Join us at AX on Sunday, September 25, at 2:00 p.m., as we host Bob Osborne and Beth Powning as part of the AX Reading Series. Bob, owner of Corn Hill Nursery, will read from “Hardy Apples” and will discuss his research and path to publication, as well as apple history, cultivation and pests. Beth will touch on the photography process as well as their collaboration, which began with a handshake at a potluck supper back in 1989. There will be a question and answer period following the discussion.

Although Knock’s Café is closed on Sunday, AX will have a bartender on hand to serve refreshments.

Atlantic Books had this to say about “Hardy Apples”:

“‘Hardy Apples’ is both a practical guide and a loving tribute to the wonderful abundance and diversity of apple cultivars available to the northern gardener and orchardist. Full of tips, facts, beautiful photographs and fascinating stories about apples both popular and obscure, this book is sure to inform and entertain in equal measure.”

Thanks to the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture and the Government of Canada. This reading is also made possible with financial assistance from The Canada Council for the Arts through The Writers’ Union of Canada.
