This year’s theme allows us to reflect on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s beautiful poems about nature, his personal life, and life’s stages in general – for which nature poems were often a metaphor. Free poetry readings, movies, lectures, cozy fires, performances, exhibitions, and community fun will lift your spirits, and you’ll hardly notice the weather outside. All events are free and open to the public.
