For the 97th work of art in our 100-part series “100 Days of Homer,” we’ve selected “Fall’s Games - The Apple-Bee,” originally published in Harper’s Weekly. An apple bee was an informal gathering in which apples were cleaned, pared (Detail 1), then sliced and strung out to dry (top of Detail 2). There were opportunities to socialize, too!
