Join Concord Museum Curator David Wood and Leslie Perrin Wilson, Curator of the William Munroe Special Collections Concord Free Public Library, for a book discussion of the Concord Reads selection, Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education (1991), by Michael Pollan.
With a passionate and eloquent argument for reconceiving our relationship with nature, Pollan examines the troubled borders between nature and contemporary life. After the discussion, visit the Concord Museum's Emerson Study, Thoreau Gallery, and the agriculture exhibition with the curators to better understand the issues the book discusses. Saturday, February 9; 11:00 a.m.; Free; at the Concord Museum.
The Concord Free Public Library, Concord Museum, and ConcordCAN are collaborating to present Concord Reads: About Food and Farming, a six-month program of reading, discussions, exhibitions, and events.
