The Poetry of Places: A cartographic stroll with the bards

A poet has the awe-inspiring power to immortalize a place within his audience’s mind with only their words. Join us as we explore the real locations behind many of the world’s most famous poems and their bards. From the shores of the British Isles to the churchyard in Cambridge to the source of Lake Huron, we will visit the places that inspired some of the world’s most famous poets, including Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Butler Yeats, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and many others. Bring a poem about your favorite place and take a journey with us.
