Burnt into Memory: How Brownfield Faced the Fire

February 20, 2018, 4:30 PM

Free

In the space of a few hours on Oct. 23, 1947, a furious wildfire destroyed almost all of the small western Maine town of Brownfield. Neighbors fought and fled the fire, then returned, determined to rebuild their community as best they could. Drawing on interviews with townspeople, letters, photographs, and newspaper reports, storyteller Jo Radner tells an epic story of terror, courage, generosity, and hope.

Sponsored by the Center for the Arts and Humanities.
