    Location: Old South Meeting House- Boston Time: 6:30 PM Fee Information: Free

Celebrate National Poetry Month with a
fun evening of poetry reading and lively
discussion honoring the many poets who have
contributed to the Meeting House's rich history
and-at a time when the building's demolition
seemed imminent-its very survival. National
Park Service Ranger Rob Velella will lead
participants through a celebration of poets from
Phillis Wheatley to Edward Everett Hale, from
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to the author
of "Mary Had a Little Lamb."  Co-sponsored by
Old South Meeting House. This program is made
possible by funding from the Lowell Institute. No reservations are required.
