‘The Ledge’: December 27, 1956 (Down East)

Lawrence Sargent Hall '36

The December 2012 issue of Down East magazine features an article about the true event of December 27, 1956, that inspired Bowdoin professor Lawrence Sargent Hall ’36’s famous short story “The Ledge.”

Bowdoin magazine covered the 50th anniversary of “The Ledge” in winter 2009, including audio of Hall reading the story, which he recorded shortly after its orignal publication in 1959.
