To honor the life of Henry David Thoreau in the year of his 200th birthday, Harvard Divinity School will host Laura Dassow Walls, author of Henry David Thoreau: A Life and Richard Higgins, author of Thoreau and the Language of Trees to discuss Thoreau's life and work. Respondents include Barry Andrews, a Unitarian Universalist minister who is the author of several books on Transcendentalism and a longtime participant in the Thoreau Society, and Terry Tempest Williams, who is an author, conservationist, and activist who will be a writer-in-residence at HDS during the 2017–18 academic year.
