Thinking Like the Sun: Stellar Knowledge of the Woods, Weeds, Swamp, and Infinity of You

An Author Talk from Dr. Barbara Mossberg

Mossberg returns to the Thoreau Farmhouse to explore “The World as Walden,”  Thoreau’s meaning to writers today, and his role in her recent eco-memoir, Here for the Present.

Reading from her work as an example of inspiration from Thoreau’s writing in “thinking like the sun,” Mossberg shares Thoreau’s influence on the book,  the challenge as a California laureate, city’s poet in residence, to make of any place a “Walden” in her vision and writings.
