Join us as we kick off the new year with a discussion of Henry David Thoreau's classic Walden. In this much-loved volume Thoreau condenses his two-year sojourn in a house which he built himself on the shores of Walden Pond just outside of Boston, Massachusetts into a single year, using the four seasons to organize and make sense of the cycle of life shared by both nature and man. It is said that "Walden is eternal". Read with us and see if you agree!
