Calendar Alert: Sun. May 31, Robert Frost Memorial Poetry Reading with Galway Kinnell

The Old Stone House Museum in Brownington is sponsoring a Robert Frost Poetry Reading on the shore of Willoughby Lake in Westmore, VT, on Sunday afternoon, May 31, from 2 to 4 p.m. Frost and his family camped on the same spot 100 years ago this summer.

Several area poets are going to read, including Galway Kinnell, Leland Kinsey, David Budbill, Lindsay Knowlton, Jerry Johnson, and Burt Porter, who has put a couple of poems to music.

Local students who have just read Natalie Bober's A Restless Spirit, the biography of Robert Frost will be exhibiting their Frost-inspired projects, and the Willoughvale Inn will be providing refreshments.

The site is just below the Willoughvale Inn on Rt. 5A (Westmore, VT). Parking is in the Willoughvale parking lot. Follow the path down to the lake. The event is sponsored by the Old Stone House Museum.
