Walden Woods Project
44 Baker Farm Rd, Lincoln, MA, 01773

The Walden Woods Project invites you to join us for our new Reading Circle! Open to the public, we will read and explore works by Thoreau as well as authors whose work contributes to an even deeper examination of Thoreau’s ideas.

At our first Reading Circle, on February 26, we will discuss:

  • “Civil Disobedience,” by Henry David Thoreau
  • “Slavery in Massachusetts,” by Henry David Thoreau
  • “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We will have some questions prepared to start the discussion and also encourage participants to bring their own!  Walden Woods Project Curator of Collections and Thoreau scholar Jeff Cramer will join us to provide biographical and historical context to the conversation.

We will begin at 7 PM and finish by 8:30 PM. Wine, refreshments, and non-alcoholic drinks will be offered.

We have had so many pre-registrations for the Reading Circle that we are closing registration and starting a wait list!  We are sorry to limit the number of participants, but feel it is necessary in order to have a productive, in-depth discussion at the Reading Circle.
