¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 We’ve created the group Thoreau Society Annual Gathering 2016 at The Readers’ Thoreau so that those attending the 2016 Gathering in Concord can communicate online as well as face-to-face — not only at the meeting itself but before and after it as well.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Even if you’re not attending the Gathering, you’re welcome to join this public group to follow the emerging conversations, make new connections, and sustain existing ones.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 You don’t have to belong to The Thoreau Society to connect here with Society members or to read and comment on the proceedings of the Gathering. But if you’re not already a member, what are you waiting for? Individual memberships begin at as little as $35 for students. You’ll be supporting a great cause, and you’ll get free subscriptions to the Society’s publications — The Thoreau Society Bulletin and The Concord Saunterer: A Journal of Thoreau Studies — as well as 10% off at both the The Shop at Walden Pond and the Society’s eStore, not to mention member events like the Gathering itself.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 If you’re giving a presentation at the conference, we hope you’ll consider posting a copy of your presentation here so that attendees and non-attendees alike can engage you in conversation about your ideas. As author, you’ll retain copyright of your work, and we’ll post a notice to that effect on your presentation. You might also consider applying a Creative Commons license to your work, which will enable you to specify exactly how it may be used by others.
