A Year with Henry David Thoreau

In July of 2015, Cynthia embarked on a year-long "conversation" with 19th Century American author, poet, naturalist and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau. The resulting blog, A Year with Henry, chronicles Cynthia's daily personal reflections and musings on the beloved author's life and works - with an occasional surprise visit from the author himself! Join the conversation by visiting A Year with Henry.

Find Cynthia's memoir, Never Count Crow, on and at select independent bookstores.
