Quotes/Longfellow House Dickens Tour/Tea giveaway

“I have so many little matters to tell you of, that I cannot wait any longer before I begin to put them down”. JA to CEA Thursday April 18, 1811

Jane Austen quote of the week: ‘The weather, for winter weather, is delightful.’ – letter to Cassandra Austen, 24th Jan 1813.
Free tours of the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (105 Brattle Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts) focused on Charles Dickens and his visits there. The British author had close ties to the American poet – and their friendship has left some fun anecdotes which will be sha…red by tour guide Rob Velella. This special tour will be approximately 60 minutes. Hosted by the National Park Service in honor of Dickens’s bicentenary year.

These free tours begin at noon, 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. Space is limited but will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
