Join Dartmouth author Ben Shattuck on Friday, Oct. 7 for a literary walk through Destruction Brook Woods, located on Slades Corner Road.

The walk will be held from 2 to 4 p.m.

During the hike, Shattuck will read from his debut book “Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau” and discuss his ode to the healing powers of nature.

In “Six Walks,” Shattuck brings the relevance of Thoreau right into the present, stoking a greater appreciation for walking as a way to nurture your spirit and a desire to reacquaint yourself with Thoreau’s work himself.

The upcoming walk is part of South Coast Almanac’s Walking Book Tour series, which brings together stories and the South Coast. There is no requirement that participants need to have previously read the book.

Along with trekking through Destruction Brook Woods, there will be an opportunity to sit down with Shattuck at Davoll’s General store, which he is part owner of.

The event is free, but preregistration is required. To sign up, visit southcoastalmanac.com/wbc.
