Top Drawer News — Quoting Thoreau

Thanks for sharing this!

 

We’ve mentioned before that each chapter of our young adult novel, Walled In, begins with a quote from Walden, the simple-living classic written by Henry David Thoreau.

We got to thinking that while we selected the quotes for their relevance to the story, readers may be interested in the larger meaning of the text.

So we collected the 18 quotes featured in Walled In, paired them with with the surrounding text from Walden, and created a new Flipbook.

Here ’tis, for your reading pleasure. Just click on the cover below to open the book.
