Thoreau & Me in the Finger Lakes: Discussion & Book Signing

Thoreau & Me in the Finger Lakes: Discussion & Book Signing

Thursday, Nov. 15 | 6–7pm

There is an innate connection between humans and the natural world. It is timeless bond that is now more essential to our health and well-being than ever before. Henry David Thoreau believed that by immersing ourselves in nature we can lead healthier, happier lives. Thoreau and Me in the Finger Lakes by Mark Holdren awakens the reader's spirit to a deepened awareness of nature and peaceful mindfulness with all of life.

The book is is gracefully illustrated by Elaine Verstraete and captures the magic and beauty of our region while lifting our thoughts and spirits to contemplate the deeper meanings of life and nature. 

Meet author Mark Holdren as he discusses his book at the Cumming Nature Center, part of a year-long program being sponsored by The Rochester Regional Library Council (RRLC) Breakthrough Grant for the Naples Library. The goal of this project is to connect library patrons to natural areas in their community in order to deepen relationships with the natural world and involvement with environmental issues through creative nature awareness journaling activities, recording of observations for citizen science on-line projects, and expanding environmental literacy through book discussion events.

Holdren is also the best-selling author of Back Roads of the Finger Lakes and several novels.

 

The program is free and will include refreshments, pizza, and books for sale. Donations to Cumming Nature Center are gratefully accepted.
