Thoreau’s Anniversary

March 31, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In honor of Henry Thoreau’s 200th anniversary, historian and naturalist Dr. Kevin Dann is walking from New York City to Concord, Massachusetts. Performing Captain of a Huckleberry Party – his provocative celebration of Thoreau in riddle, rhyme, and story – in 13 towns along the way, he hopes to inspire a new generation of Americans to take up Thoreau’s practice of enlivened observation of Nature and enlightened citizenship.

Historian, naturalist, and troubadour Dr. Kevin Dann is the author of ten books, including Bright Colors Falsely Seen: Synaesthesia and the Search for Transcendental KnowledgeAcross the Great Border Fault: The Naturalist Myth in America; and Lewis Creek Lost and Found. He has taught at Rutgers University, University of Vermont, and SUNY. He wrote, produced, and acted in Brooklyn’s first immersive street mystery, Enigma.
