“Reservoir Year” with Nina Shengold
Shengold talks about the differences between Reservoir Year: A Walker’s Book of Days and Thoreau’s Walden, the writers who inspired her, and how the experience of writing about the outside world each day affected her, giving her a better understanding of both the person she was and the person she wanted to be.
