'Lowell Poems and Places' Guided Tour

Join me for a free guided tour of special places in downtown Lowell that are linked to poems written by me and other writers including Lucy Larcom and Jack Kerouac on Saturday, July 8, 10 AM, at the Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center, 246 Market St, in downtown Lowell. The 90-minute tour is part of the popular Lowell Walks series, now in its third year.

I will lead the group through the center of downtown, stopping at key locations to share behind-the-scenes stories of how certain poems came to be written and making the connection between poetry and "place." The tour steps off rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather.
