As part of the city-wide festival Boston is Thoreau Country and #Thoreau200, in honor of the great writer’s bicentennial, Emerson College is pleased to host a screening of PAUL TURANO’s film, Wonder, Wander, Wilderness.
Wander, Wonder, Wilderness is a documentary project that explores the urban wilds and parks of Greater Boston. This hour long essay film chronicles the filmmaker’s engagement with green spaces in an urban environment and explores the complex notions that they reveal about human ecology. Discussion with director and professor Paul Turano to follow.
This event, cosponsored by the Boston Literary District, is free and open to the public. Don’t miss it!
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
