Thoreau and the Miracle of Poetry

7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

A poem is one undivided, unimpeded expression fallen ripe into literature,” Thoreau wrote in A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. Join the Walden Woods Project  on Wednesday, February 24, for Thoreau and the Miracle of Poetry and hear four contemporary poets, who will read from their work that echoes Thoreau’s, often about nature, social reform, and living deliberately. A discussion with the featured poets about how Thoreau, among others, has inspired their writing will follow the readings. The four featured poets include: Catherine StaplesErnesto EstrellaDavid Leff, and Quintin Collins. This event is sponsored by the Walden Woods Project.  This is a free virtual Zoom event but donations will be accepted to be split among the featured poets.  Learn more about the poets and register at
