Poets To Discuss Frost at Grand

Poet-in-Residence Jim Lenfestey will discuss Robert Frost at Grand Hotel Wednesday, July 30, as part of the Grand Hotel summer poetry series. The class takes place in the Audubon Bar from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. It is open to the public and all necessary materials will be available as handouts.

"Frost is probably America's most beloved poet," said Mr. Lenfestey. "We all grow up with 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy evening,' and many remember the recitation of 'The Gift Outright' in the wind at the inauguration of President John F Kennedy. But there is much more to the man and his work that led to him earning four Pulitzer prizes."

Of the class on Wednesday, Mr. Lenfestey added, "I guarantee your view of Frost will be broadened and deepened."
