Henry David Thoreau: A Life

Laura Dassow Walls

Join Laura Dassow Walls, author of the forthcoming Henry David Thoreau: A Life, for an illustrated presentation on the profound, inspiring complexity of Henry David Thoreau. Drawing on Thoreau’s copious writings, published and unpublished, Walls presents a Thoreau with all his quirks and contradictions: the young man shattered by the sudden death of his brother; the ambitious Harvard College student; and the ecstatic visionary who closed Walden with an account of the regenerative power of the Cosmos.

The exhibition This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal will be open at 5:30 pm for program attendees.

Wednesday, July 26, 6:30 pm
$15; $10 for members; free for students with valid ID.

Please call (212) 685-0008 ext. 560 or e-mail tickets@themorgan.org for information.
