Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome award-winning author and editor Jeffrey S. Cramer--curator of collections at the Walden Woods Project's Thoreau Institute Library--for a discussion of his latest book, "Solid Seasons: The Friendship of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson." Any biography that concentrates on either Henry David Thoreau or Ralph Waldo Emerson tends to diminish the other figure, but in Solid Seasons both men remain central and equal. Through several decades of writing, friendship remained a primary theme for them both.
