David Gessner Presents Quiet Desperation, Savage Delight
June 18 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PMfree
Join Townie Books for a reading and conversation with David Gessner on
QUIET DESPERATION, SAVAGE DELIGHT: Sheltering with Thoreau
in the Age of Crisis.
When the pandemic struck, nature writer David Gessner turned to Henry David Thoreau, the original social distancer, for lessons on how to live. Those lessons—of learning our own backyard, re-wilding, loving nature, self-reliance, and civil disobedience—hold a secret that could help save us as we face the greater crisis of climate.
