End Time: 7:30 PM
 University of Oregon professor of English William Rossi will discuss why Henry Thoreauís Walden, much like Moby Dick and Uncle Tomís Cabin, is known by many and read by few. But, for Americans, why does no other nineteenth-century writer comes to mind prepackaged with a myth that makes his book less likely to be read than Thoreau? Free and open to the public.
