As a tribute to the Harrison Library's own Victory Garden, Food Historian Sarah Wassberg Johnson will explore how Victory Gardens emerged when the need for food and grains was heightened with the onset of the World Wars.

A frequent interviewee of journalists looking for historical context, she was featured in all three episodes of The History Channel mini series, "The Food That Built America" and has been featured on NPR, the Atlantic, CNN, Atlas Obscura, and more. She has published in New York History journal and the Agricultural History journal and is currently finalizing edits on her book, "Preserve or Perish: Food in New York State during the Great War, 1916-1919," under contract with SUNY Press.
