Blizzard of 78 presentation coming to KFL

KENNEBUNK — The Kennebunk Free Library will host Larry Dwight at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7 and his presentation about the blizzard of 1978.

Dwight lives in Kennebunk and his presentation features a collection of personal photos of the damage sustained to his coastal home and the surrounding areas during this historic northeast weather event that
killed nearly 100 people and injured 4,500.  

Comparisons to the recent “bomb cyclone” from early January of this year will be made especially
in relation to coastal flooding.  There will also be a discussion about the architectural choices of both home and seawall building.

Dwight is a long-time Kennebunk resident and Trustee Emeritus of the Kennebunk Free Library.

This event is wheelchair accessible and the Kennebunk Free Library is at 112 Main St. in Kennebunk.
