"A Visit from Henry David Thoreau" is now available to bring one of America's most incisive and thought-provoking voices to Pilgrim Lutheran Church. Since 1991, Kevin Radaker has presented his dramatic characterization of Thoreau over 400 times around the nation at universities, colleges, libraries, museums, conferences, state and national parks.  In addition, he has presented his "Thoreau" as a part of summer Chautauqua tours in the Great Plains States (1991-1993), Missouri and Illinois (1997, 1998), Massachusetts (1998), the Carolinas and New Hampshire (2001), Oklahoma (2003), Maryland (2004), Colorado (2008, 2011), and Ohio (2008, 2014, 2015).  In 2009, as part of the "John Brown and New England" program, he offered his "Thoreau" on the 150th anniversaries of Thoreau's spirited defense of John Brown in Concord, Boston, and Worcester, Massachusetts. This outstanding interactive humanities program is certain to entertain, educate, and inspire your group or audience as it takes them back to 1860, to that point in history when America was poised on the brink of the Civil War, the railroad and industry were changing the character and pace of our lives, and few Americans had begun to consider the value of our wild lands.
