May 18– The Many Lives of Harriet’s House at 63 Federal Street. Bowdoin College is proud to present Tea With Harriet, a monthly tea and conversation series about the life and legacy of Harriet Beecher Stowe. “ Harriet’s House” has gone through many incarnations since she lived and wrote here in the mid-1800s. This Tea will focus on some of its history from the drafty home she rented with its smoky chimneys and leaky cistern, to its lavish renovation undertaken right after she left. Learn about its subsequent lives as gift shop, inn, pub, and restaurant; and the recent renovation by Bowdoin College which allows it to be open to the public today. Katie Randall, Bowdoin Graduate ’16, will be the Guest Speaker. While a student at Bowdoin, Katie created a photo essay of the renovation process, called “Evolution of a Landmark” which outlines the process.  Tea and light refreshments will be provided. This event is held the third Thursday of each month, 1 p.m.–2:30 p.m., at 63 Federal Street, in the home where Harriet Beecher Stowe lived (1850-1852).
