Join Us for the Ranger Walkabout on Thursday, July 24: H. P. Lovecraft Walk: A Writer in Providence

Famed horror writer H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) lived in Providence for most of his life, and he made the city the setting for some of his most popular works. Lovecraft also wrote thousands of letters, many of which have been published, which detail his love of his home city.

Join Sarah Zurier, a historian with the Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission as she discusses H.P. Lovecraft's writings about Providence's rapidly changing cityscape and his attempts to make the case for preserving historic places.

Parking: This program will begin at 6:30 pm at the Roger Williams National Memorial, 282 North Main St., Providence. Use the Memorial's parking area (entrance at corner of Canal Street and Smith Street). Park is also available along North Main Street.
