Emerson and Concord: America Discovers Idealism
May 25, 2021 at 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Join the Concord Museum and the Ralph Waldo Emerson Memorial Association for the first annual Robert D. Richardson III Lecture to mark Emerson’s birthday featuring author and philosopher, Richard Geldard. Dr. Geldard, the author of a number of studies of Emerson, will provide opening remarks and then engage in a conversation with Concord Museum Director, Tom Putnam. The forum will also include some video excerpts from the last time that Bob Richardson, a preeminent biographer of Emerson and Thoreau, spoke at the Museum, one of his last speaking engagements before his untimely death last summer.
Please join us for this virtual Concord Museum Forum.
