WI – Johnny Appleseed Signing

Paul Buhle appears at A Room of One’s Own on Friday September 22nd at 6:00 PM. He will be discussing his newest book, Johnny Appleseed, illustrated by Noah Van Sciver.

John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, made himself the stuff of legend by spreading the seeds of apple trees from Wisconsin to Indiana. Along with that, he offered the seeds of nonviolence and vegetarianism, good relationships with Native Americans, and peace among the settlers. This is a graphic biography of the green dreamer of the American Frontier, the legendary John Chapman, from Brown University scholar Paul Buhle (Red Rosa) and award-winning cartoonist Noah Van Sciver (The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln).

Paul Buhle, a 1960s Madisonian and publisher here of the SDS magazine RADICAL AMERICA, has written and edited several histories of the Madison Left including HISTORY AND THE NEW LEFT, a biography of William Appleman Williams and IT STARTED IN WISCONSIN, a documentary of the Uprising, co-edited with Mari Jo Buhle.
