Actor Wendell Refior will perform his one-man show, “Emerson Reminisces.” Wendell Refior, in period costume as Ralph Waldo Emerson, will portray Emerson's life as a series of recollections: marriages, births and deaths, travel, relationships and accomplishments. Refior will draw from Emerson's letters to his brothers and friends, and brief excerpts from key essays and lectures. There will be an opportunity for open Q&A as well. Refior is an independent Emerson scholar who has studied and taught the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson for more than two decades. Learn more about Refoir HERE.
