Book Group @The Bookmark: The Stranger in the Woods
Gather at The Bookmark to discuss “The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit” by Michael Finkel.
Many people dream of escaping modern life. Most will never act on it—but in 1986, twenty-year-old Christopher Knight did just that when he left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the woods. He would not have a conversation with another person for the next twenty-seven years.
Drawing on extensive interviews with Knight himself, journalist Michael Finkel shows how Knight accomplished this — and the unique challenges he faced returning to the world. This thought-provoking books makes us challenge our own assumptions on what is a good life?
