Vesper Flights: A Conversation with Helen Macdonald
  • Date: Tuesday, March 22, 2022
  • Time: 5:00 pm
  • Location: Online

Henry David Thoreau once remarked: “In wildness is the preservation of the world.” One of his intellectual and spiritual heirs is Helen Macdonald, bestselling author of H Is for Hawk. Join her in a conversation about her newest collection of essays, Vesper Flights, in which she writes about “those moments where mystery arises from the meeting of human art and unpredictable natural phenomena.” At the conclusion of the forum the Concord Museum will launch a new Thoreau microsite that was funded, in part, through the National Endowment for the Humanities.
