MSC Winter Wisdom is free and open to all! Saving Thoreau’s Birthplace

Our speaker will describe the lengthy and concerted effort of a community to save a historic landmark and reaffirm the life and persona of this iconic figure. Lucille Stott, former President of the Thoreau Farm Trust and editor of the Concord Journal, will discuss her book, Saving Thoreau’s Birthplace (2018). Her description of the public-private partnership that resulted in the preservation of the Thoreau family homestead will remind us of the power of grassroots engagement and the importance of reviving the lost art of finding common ground. Lucille taught English and creative writing at Concord Academy and also served as editor of Appalachia, the journal of the Appalachian Mountain Club. She has a B.A. degree in French Language and Literature from Southern Connecticut State University and M.A. degree from Middlebury College. She also studied at the Sorbonne.
