BE THOREAU: NEIGHBOR A Community Forum on Being a Neighbor – Concord Museum

Join in the conversation! On Saturday, September 9, 3:00pm – 5:00pm at the Wright Tavern there will be a community forum on being a neighbor in Concord. The event, which is part of a series of programs titled BE THOREAU, is free and refreshments will be served.

Representatives from the Concord Museum, the Emerson House, The Old Manse, Robbins House, and Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House will speak to what it meant to be a neighbor in Thoreau’s time and how people from the past can help us understand issues of the present. Audience members are invited to discuss their ideas about how historical sites can better address contemporary issues that affect the local, national, and global communities.

The Concord Museum is presenting the BE THOREAU public program series in conjunction with This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal exhibition which opens on September 29, 2017 and runs through January 21, 2018. The BE THOREAU program series focuses on seven topics from the This Ever New Self exhibition and “what it means today” to be students, readers, neighbors, observers, workers, thinkers, and writers.
