In Henry David Thoreau's classic essay "Walking" and other works, he describes the act of walking as an uplifting art accessible to anyone with a spirit of adventure. Featured speaker, Bryon Williams, will explore the ways in which Thoreau celebrates walking as an ideal method of communing with the wider world and as an essential complement to work, study, and contemplation. This program will be held on Wednesday, September 17 at 7:00 pm in the library's community room.
This talk is the first in a series of programs to be offered during the 10-week Let's Book walking/reading program starting in September.
"Walking with Thoreau" is open to the general public, free of charge. You do not have to be a member of Let's Book to attend and no registration is required.
