“Naked in the Woods”- Mac’s Backs
Saturday | 7:00 PM–9:00 PM
“Naked in the Woods” a talk with Margaret Grundstein
Time: Saturday, September 26, 7pm
Information: Naked in the Woods chronicles Grundstein’s shift from reluctant hippie to committed utopian sacrificing phones, electricity, and running water to live on 160 acres of remote forest with nothing but a drafty cabin and each other. Grundstein, (whose husband left, seduced by freer love ) faced tough choices. Could she make it as a single woman in man’s country? Did she still want to? How committed was she to her new life? Although she reveled in the shared transcendence of communal life deep in the natural world, disillusionment slowly eroded the dream. Brotherhood frayed when food became scarce. Rifts formed over land ownership. Dogma and reality clashed.
