Step back in time to 1856 as Henry Thoreau pays a visit to the Shrewsbury Library! Mr. Thoreau (realistically portrayed by Historian Richard Smith) will read from his essay “Walking; or, The Wild”. Afterward, there will be a lively and entertaining discussion about his life and writings as he takes questions from the audience.

Richard Smith has been involved in Living History for over 25 years. For 18 years he has studied the life of Henry Thoreau and since moving to Concord, Massachusetts in 1999 he has successfully performed as Thoreau throughout New England and around the country.
