The work of Michael Maglaras & Terri Templeton

Filmmaker Michael Maglaras and writer James Marcus in conversation


On Thursday, June 22 the Concord Free Library will host filmmaker Michael Maglaras and writer James Marcus for an evening celebrating Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

In this one night only event, filmmaker Michael Maglaras, whose new essay in film, Ralph Waldo Emerson: Give All to Love (which will premiere at the Library on September 30) will hold a conversation with author and editor James Marcus. 

Give All to Love, filmed in and around Concord, including at the Emerson House, will provide a new and deeply personal perspective on Emerson, his writing, his life, and his importance to contemporary life.

James Marcus is featured in Give All to Love and will release his new book, Glad to the Brink of Fear: A Portrait of Ralph Waldo Emerson in March 2024, published by Princeton University Press. In this new evaluation of the importance of Emerson, we will get a modern perspective and a deeply personal reflection on how Emerson’s writing has mattered to a great contemporary writer speaking with the voice of our time.
