200 years after Henry David Thoreau’s birth in Concord, Massachusetts, a distinguished panel will consider Thoreau’s lessons for today’s world.

Christopher Lydon, host of Open Source, will moderate the discussion as the panel explores how Thoreau’s ideas have informed 21st-century civil disobedience and contemporary conversations about humans’ relationships with the natural world.

Panelists will include:

Artist and filmmaker Paul Turano (“Wander, Wonder, Wilderness”)
Laura Dassow Walls, author of the new biography “Henry David Thoreau: A Life”
Memoirist Howard Axelrod (“The Point of Vanishing”)
Maria Madison, president of The Robbins House: Concord’s African American History site
Rev. Fred Small, Minister for Climate Justice at Arlington Street Church.
