Poet e.e. cummings - Photo: World-Telegram Photo (1953)The Forest Hills Cemetery and the Forest Hills Educational Trust welcomes author and historian Dee Morris for a Sunday afternoon cemetery walking tour

Sunday, September 23rd at 2PM

Innovative poet e.e. cummings (b. 1894) loved to play with words, syntax and punctuation. Readers delighted in his provocative defiance of convention. Our stroll will celebrate this exuberant non-conformist who shares eternal rest with his third wife as well as other family members. Susanna Rowson (b. 1762), a best-selling author and cummings’ ancestor, is also memorialized. Along the way, we will honor Boston originals such as Abby W. May (b. 1829), unstoppable reformer, plus Lucius Manlius Sargent (b. 1826), an artist turned surgeon.

Join us for a fresh look at this amazing Forest Hills community.
