Program brings Emerson to life Tuesday


First Parish in Concord’s Transcendentalism Council and the Thoreau Society present “Emerson Reminisces,” featuring historical reenactor Wendell Refior, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the church at 20 Lexington Road. Refior, dressed in period costume as Ralph Waldo Emerson, will portray Emerson’s life through his recollections about marriages, births and deaths, travel, relationships, and accomplishments. He draws from Emerson’s letters to his brothers and friends, and brief excerpts from key essays and lectures. Refior has studied and taught the works of Emerson for more than a decade. A $10 donation is requested. For information, visit www.fptranscendentalism.org or call 978-369-9602.
