Wade Graham, author of American Eden: From Monticello to Central Park to Our Backyards, What Our Gardens Tell Us About Who We Are, explores the birth and career of the modern garden in California between 1920 and the 1960s. He charts the prewar origins, postwar evolution, and global influence of this unique garden idiom, from pioneers Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra to modern masters Thomas Church, Garrett Eckbo, and Lawrence Halprin. The program is presented by the California Garden & Landscape History Society.
