Program description: "Inspired by a certain notable New Englander, Ben Shattuck packed a loaf of bread and a notebook and took a walk along the Cape Cod shoreline. Then he hiked up Mount Katahdin and Mount Wachusett. Ben’s new book is Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau. For this year’s Lit Crawl Boston, Thoreau himself (portrayed by Brent Ranalli of thoreaulivinghistory.org) will be on hand to introduce himself and respond. Come imagine a conversation across time."
