Andrew Blauner returns to the Westport Library with a new compilation of essays from 27 of today’s leading writers offer wide-ranging original pieces exploring how Thoreau has influenced and inspired them in Now Comes Good Sailing. A prophet of environmentalism and vegetarianism, an abolitionist, and a critic of materialism and technology, Thoreau even seems to have anticipated a world of social distancing in his famous experiment at Walden Pond. The result is a lively and compelling collection that richly demonstrates the countless ways Thoreau continues to move, challenge, and provoke readers today.
Registration is open for participating via livestream or in person at the Westport Library. Copies of Now Comes Good Sailing are available for ordering and pickup at the Library for those who live nearby or shipping to those further away.
