Venue: Left Bank Books - Central West End In this fascinating cultural and natural history, Cindy Ott, an assistant professor of American Studies at St. Louis University, tells the story of the pumpkin. Beginning with the myth of the first Thanksgiving, she shows how Americans have used the pumpkin to fulfill their desire to maintain connections to nature and to the family farm of lore, and, ironically, how small farms and rural communities have been revitalizaed in the process.
