Apples of New England, by Russell Steven PowellI WILL BE giving three talks and readings during and just after the Columbus Day Weekend, beginning with “Search for Heirloom Apples” at Historic Deerfield Saturday. Monday I travel to Maine for an appearance at Boothby’s Orchard and Farm in Livermore, Maine, with photographer Bar Lois Weeks, and then return to the Pioneer Valley to speak at the Williamsburg Historical Society’s annual meeting Tuesday.

The reviews are starting to come in. Here are three, beginning with today’s Hampshire Life, the weekly magazine of the Daily Hampshire Gazette, plus the Cape Cod Times, and The Valley News in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
