“Music is the universal language of mankind”

“Lives of great men [and women!] all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time”

“Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year."

“There was a little girl,

Who had a little curl,

Right in the middle of her forehead.

When she was good,

She was very good indeed,

But when she was bad she was horrid”

The above quotes are but four snippets from the vast amount of Longfellow's poetry.

Our community is delighted that a third experience with The Big Read has been presented to us. After “The Shawl” as well as “The Age of Innocence” we know what is in store: Great and miraculous moments, innumerable memories, fabulous collaborations and cooperation, imaginations soaring and excitement overflowing!
