LONGFELLOW DAYS - History of Henry in Brunswick

LONGFELLOW DAYS 2018  –  “THE HEART HATH ITS OWN MEMORY”

Tuesday, February 27, 4:00 PM | HISTORY OF HENRY IN BRUNSWICK
We have invited John Cross, Secretary of Development and College Relations at Bowdoin, and an unofficial historian of the College, to talk about Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s experience in Brunswick during the 1820s and ‘30s, first as a Bowdoin student and later as an influential faculty member. Note:  This date is HWL’s actual birthday, so bring a kazoo or confetti to celebrate. Unitarian Universalist Church, 1 Middle Street

Our 2018 theme, the quote at the top, comes from Longfellow’s 1880 poem “From My Arm-Chair.”

Longfellow Days is a program of the Brunswick Downtown Association, with support from Bowdoin College, The Brunswick Inn,
Hannaford, and the Nathaniel Davis Fund. All programs are free of charge.
