HAVERHILL — On a crisp November day in 2009, Aaron Zaino climbed trees at the John Greenleaf Whittier Birthplace, gingerly crossed the historic property shoeless, and stood barefoot on stones in Fernside Brook — where the famous poet fished in his youth. On Sunday, Haverhill’s reigning Barefoot Boy will be wearing sneakers when he and professional fine art illustrator Lisa Greenleaf, a descendent of the Whittier family, sign copies of her new book, “The Barefoot Boy.”

 

It features 27 colorful illustrations that accompany stanzas of Whittier’s poem, a reflection of his summer days as a child. READ MORE
