Literary and Philosophical Society of Newcastle
The Lit & Phil hosts a special exhibition to celebrate the Bicentennial of Henry David Thoreau's Birth 1817-1862, Birds of Thoreau Country by John Caffrey.
Books, Antiquarian to Present; including an exhibition of John Caffrey’s original paintings related to the observations of Thoreau.
With great sadness, the Thoreau Society must share news of the passing of lifetime member John Caffrey. Caffrey was a huge admirer of Henry David Thoreau, who influenced him to record his own nature sightings in his original wildlife illustrations. He will always be remembered by the Thoreau Society community.
His exhibition in May at the Lit and Phil will go ahead in his honor.
This event is part of the Thoreau Society Bicentennial Ambassador Program.
