It’s been a little more than two weeks since we feted Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on his 205th birthday. So our apologies that it’s taken this long to share the results of that February 25th party with you.
The event involved several special guests, much sharing of poetry, crafts, cake, and general camaraderie. Many thanks to former Maine State Representative Herb Adams, MPBN radio host Irwin Gratz, Deirdre Fulton from the Portland Phoenix, and students Ayni Mohamed (Casco Bay High School) and Sabrin Hassan (Portland High School) for joining us to read Longfellow to the crowd. See you if you can tell who’s who in the following photos!
