Tuesday, February 9, 7:00 PM • A PORTLAND BOYHOODBabins book cover
A true Longfellow expert, John William Babin from the Maine Historical Society’s Wadsworth/Longfellow House, will read and talk about his new book, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in Portland: The Fireside Poet. Inside the historic house on Congress Street, Henry watched his father help craft the Maine State Constitution … and wrote his first childhood poem.
Daggett Lounge, Thorne Hall, Bowdoin College

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.
