David Gessner: “How to Write on the Heels of Experience: Writing about Thoreau and the Pandemic in Real Time”

Join us in a conversation with author David Gessner and Michael Frederick, Executive Director of the Thoreau Society, as they discuss writing during the pandemic. They will discuss Gessner’s approach to journaling about place and several books that he has written. Gessner will tell us about his connection with Henry and his rebellion from him in some respects. He will give the audience writing tips and ideas about building good writing habits and why writing is so vital for us all in an age of crisis. After listening to the conversation, you will be inspired to build your own book in a year.
