Book discussion at Jesup Library

BAR HARBOR — The book “Naming Mt. Thoreau” will be discussed on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor.

“Naming Mt. Thoreau” is a collection of essays that arose from the simple undertaking of ascending a mountain; it is a meditation on friendship and influence, proximity and distance.

Composed of a series of essays, poems and photographs, this volume contains contributions from Michael Blumlein, Dick Bryan, Darryl DeVinney, Hilary Gordon, Tom Killion, Paul Park, David Robertson, Kim Stanley Robinson, Carter Scholz, Gary Snyder and Christopher Woodcock.

This compilation’s authors started out to rename USGS peak 12,691 Mount Thoreau to honor Henry David Thoreau for his writing.
