Engineering Thoreau: Nature, Technology, and the Connected Life: The Annual Gathering of the Thoreau Society in Concord, Massachusetts, celebrates the life, works, and legacy of New England Transcendentalist writer Henry David Thoreau.

Thoreau's book WALDEN has inspired millions of people to live deliberately. Join the celebration with walks, talks, music, film, dramatic performances and four unforgettable days of events.

Join Thoreau scholars and enthusiasts who travel to Concord internationally to participate in events.
