Robert Pogue Harrison on WBUR
Robert Pogue Harrison, author of Gardens: An Essay on the Human Condition, was a guest last Friday on the public radio call-in show On Point from WBUR in Boston. Host Tom Ashbrook questioned Harrison about the literary and philosophical aspects of the garden. The call-in segment of the program elicited discussion of community gardens, gardens and church history, and secret and sacred gardens.
In the second half of the program Irene Virag, garden columnist at Newsday and a writer for several gardening magazines, joined the discussion.
