Writers Reflect on Henry David Thoreau @ Westport Library
November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Andrew Blauner returns to the Westport Library with a new compilation of essays from 27 of today’s leading writers offer wide-ranging original pieces exploring how Thoreau has influenced and inspired them in Now Comes Good Sailing. A prophet of environmentalism and vegetarianism, an abolitionist, and a critic of materialism and technology, Thoreau even seems to have anticipated a world of social distancing in his famous experiment at Walden Pond.
