Wilderness Month Book Discussion: David La Motte on “The Practice of the Wild” by Gary Snyder

September 10, 2016, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

David LaMotte, former Chair of English at Princeton Day School, leads a walk and discussion of Gary Snyder’s “The Practice of the Wild.” For nearly 60 years, Snyder – Beat poet, Zen Buddhist, and “naturalist of [his] own species” – has been writing poems and essays that challenge us to ground ourselves in wildness and in the watersheds where we live and walk. This discussion will explore Snyder’s idea of practicing wildness, particularly as it applies to our local watershed. St. Michael’s Preserve trailhead, Princeton Avenue, Hopewell
