Michael PollanIn this autobiographical talk, Michael Pollan tells the story of the path his writing and thinking has taken since he first planted a vegetable garden under the (disastrous) influence of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. The folly that ensued convinced him that all the great books about man and nature he had read in school have not prepared him for the practical work of acting in nature. The talk includes brief readings from several of Pollan's books. This is a free, ticketed event. Select Tickets
