Thoreau Society Online Auction
Online Auction to benefit both The Thoreau Society and the Thoreau Farm Trust
February 21-March 18, 2011
The Thoreau Society seeks to stimulate interest in and foster education about Henry David Thoreau’s life, works, legacy and his place in his world and in ours, challenging all to live a deliberate, considered life. The Society believes Thoreau’s writings are as essential today as ever before, if not the more so, as societies and cultures confront the rapid changes that began in Thoreau’s time and continue in our own day.
The Thoreau Farm Trust serves as steward of the Henry David Thoreau birthplace. The Trust believes Thoreau’s extraordinary insights and ideas about life, nature, and individual responsibility are as relevant today as they were during his lifetime and preserves his birthplace as an education center, community resource, and place of pilgrimage.
Both organizations offer educational programming that reflects their missions.
