Spofford’s presentation on the history of the “Week Maine Burned” at the Brick Store Museum Program Center.

Alongside the lecture will be archival photos of the fire, home film reels, and personal recounts of the events from local citizens.

Tickets: $5 per person, benefiting the Brick Store Museum

Tickets can be purchased at the door, or in advance at the Brick Store Museum at 117 Main Street, Kennebunk.
