On July 4, 1845, writer and philosopher Henry David Thoreau declared his independence from civilization and moved into a cabin he built on the banks of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. “Simplify, simplify!” Thoreau urged readers of Walden; or, Life in the Woods (1854), the book he wrote about his two-year experiment in off-the-grid living.
IUP Associate Professor and Thoreau Bicentennial Ambassador Todd Nathan Thompson will detail what Thoreau can still teach us about how “to live deliberately” instead of “lead[ing] lives of quiet desperation.”
