Solid Seasons: the Friendship of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thursday, May 16, 7:00pm

at the Mary Jeanette Murray Bathhouse at Nantasket Beach


The Nantasket Beach Lecture Series is co-presented monthly by the Hull Lifesaving Museum, the Friends of the Hull Public Library, and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Books are provided by Buttonwood Books and Toys. While there is no charge to attend this event, donations are welcome and refreshments will be served.

"The abiding strength of the tie between the two writers emerges as an animating presence in both men’s journals and correspondence, which Cramer mines for quotations that allow each writer to give his own unmediated account of their friendship ... An illuminating history of an exceptional friendship." —Booklist (starred review)
