A Walk in Thoreau’s Shoes: Reading & Rambling

July 20 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Princeton Art Society members, in partnership with Goodnow Memorial Library, are commemorating Thoreau’s 1842 walk in Princeton. We’ll meet at the library for an introduction and several readings from Thoreau’s essay, “A Walk to Wachusett.” Then we’ll regroup at the Mountain House trail head on Mountain Road, and make the approximately 30-minute climb to the summit. (Those who prefer not to walk can drive up the auto road; a small fee is charged unless you have a Massachusetts State Park Pass.) Enjoy refreshments and more readings at the summit. This event is FREE, and all are welcome!

Mountain House trail head is across from the intersection of Mountain Road and Gregory Road.
No rain date; in case of bad weather we’ll stay at the library for readings and refreshments.
