Author and naturalist Henry David Thoreau is best known for living for two years on the shores of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. More than a century and a half later, his essays and books are still being read, and his words are printed on inspirational posters and greeting cards. What were his philosophies and ideas, and how do they resound with us today? And what did he do when he visited Philadelphia in 1854? Presented by Corinne H. Smith, author of Henry David Thoreau for Kids and Westward I Go Free: Tracing Thoreau’s Last Journey.
