Thoreau wrote that he “was born in the nick of time” in Concord, Massachusetts and went on to famously write about building a cabin and living at Walden Pond. This film tells the story of his life and his time at Walden Pond as well as the impact his writings have had on environmental issues, civil rights and individual thinking in our time. Following the screening, filmmaker Huey will engage in a panel discussion with historian Laura Dassow Walls.
This is the culminating event for the 2019 Thoreau Society Annual Gathering in Concord, Ma.
