Dover Free Library's Annual Dessert Social Fundraiser w/ Guest Speaker Corrine Smith, Slideshow Presentation


Date & Time: 
Aug 3 2017 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

American author and naturalist Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) is best
known for spending one night in jail for nonpayment of the state poll
tax, and for living for two years along the shores of Walden Pond in
Concord, Massachusetts. Now 200 years after his birth, Thoreau’s
essays and books are still being read, and his words are still printed
on inspirational posters, greeting cards, and social media postings.
What are his basic philosophies, and how do they resound with us
today? We will learn a bit more about this "Transcendentalist" and
will discuss what threads connect us to him – including his 1856 trip
to Brattleboro to explore the nature of the Connecticut River valley.

Corinne H. Smith is a writer, poet, and outdoor educator. She is the
author of "Westward I Go Free: Tracing Thoreau's Last Journey," the
first book to follow his 1861 trip from Massachusetts to Minnesota, as
well as a biography for middle-schoolers, "Henry David Thoreau for
Kids: His Life and Ideas, With 21 Activities." She currently divides
her time between Pennsylvania and Massachusetts; and she serves as an
occasional interpreter and blog writer for Thoreau Farm: The
Birthplace of Henry David Thoreau in Concord, Mass.
