Words is hosting the first monthly roundtable discussion on the greatness in our midst with Reg Martell & Lissa Weinmann lead a presentation and discussion on the popular water cures of the mid- to late-1800s and their connection to our literary history.

Writers Harriet Beecher Stowe and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, among others, traveled to Brattleboro’s natural water springs for their therapeutic effects. This is the first in a monthly series in which The Words Project will present their research and open a discussion on a different, “words-related” site in the Brattleboro area. Please come share your stories and thoughts with our research teams and scholars. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

An opportunity for all to participate in creating the audio tours of the Brattleboro area the Words Project is all about.
