Tea With Harriet: August 17, 2017
Bowdoin College is proud to present a monthly entertaining lecture series on the life and letters of Harriet Beecher Stowe. The event is held each third Thursday of the month from 1-2:30 pm at 63 Federal Street, the home of Harriet and Calvin Stowe and their children from 1850-52. The theme of the August Tea will be a series of stories, recreating the summer of 1882, when the lives of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry Ward Beecher, Mark Twain, Emily Dickinson, Austin Dickinson, and Martin Johnson Heade all intertwined in unusual ways. Due to the immense popularity of this program, reservations are now required and seats are filled on a first-come, first served basis. Please call 207-725-3155 to leave your name and the number of seats needed.
Stowe House guide Cathi Belcher will read some witty excerpts from The American Woman’s Home, a domestic science book Stowe co-authored with her sister, Catharine. Readings include excerpts from chapters such as “Good Temper in the Housekeeper,” “The Healthful Home,” “The Management of Young Children,” “Care of the Homeless, the Helpless and the Vicious” and others.
The event is free and open to the public. No reservations required.
Tea and light refreshments will be provided. For more information, call 207- 721-5059.
