Charlestown residents will soon be able to take a glimpse into the past, specifically on what life was like for one famed poet who lived in the Boston neighborhood nearly 400 years ago. 

The Charlestown Historical Society this month will hold an event at the Bunker Hill Museum to discuss of famed poet Anne Bradstreet, who lived in Charlestown after arriving in the New World in 1630 at the age of 18. 

Charlotte Gordon, author of the book "Mistress Bradstreet: The Untold Life of America's First Poet," will discuss how life differed for women 400 years ago compared to the present day. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m.

The event, hosted by the Charlestown Historical Society, is open to the public and will feature light refreshments.
