Event Description

The Cambridge Historical Society hosts this dramatic performance featuring Henry Wadsworth Longfellow as a young man (portrayed by Rob Velella) as he explains his woes as a harried professor and up-and-coming poet. The presentation takes him to about 1854, when his prospects in poetry suddenly mature. The event features readings of several of Longfellow's most famous works. $10 for CHS members $15 for non-members.
