64 Middlesex Avenue, Reading, MA
In celebration of the Bicentennial of Henry David Thoreau’s birth, Tom Hersey, Professor of English at University of Massachusetts Lowell, will lecture on Thoreau’s essay Civil Disobedience. This non-violent protest manifesto inspired Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.; its import is still evident today.
