Readings from Emerson’s Nature with a Slide Presentation
With his first book, Nature, Ralph Waldo Emerson created the founding text of American transcendentalism. Ron has recently annotated a new edition of Nature, and illustrated it with his photographs. In his presentation Ron will read highlights from Emerson’s essay accompanied by photographs of the natural world Ron has taken in locations far and wide.
Ron moved from his native state of Illinois to Massachusetts in 1971. He is the author of Ron authored The Concord, Sudbury, and Assabet Rivers: A Guide to Canoeing, Wildlife, and History, and The Charles River: Exploring Nature and History on Foot and by Canoe and numerous other books, both fiction and nonfiction. He has worked as a teacher, instructional designer, and, for a decade, served as Executive Director of Sudbury Valley Trustees. Emerson’s Nature is his most recent project in writing and publishing.
Ron will be happy to field general questions about nature and wildlife.
