Virtual/Zoom Program: An Evening of Poems by Robert Frost
Monday, December 28th at 6:30pm
Please join us for a joint program with Nichols Village and Langley-Adams Library. We have invited New England actor Stephen Collins for the following program: An Evening of Poems by Robert Frost. An Evening of Frost is a unique, interactive performance that begins with a short biographical introduction into the poet’s life. Robert Frost is greatly misunderstood. Certain people, some academics, and politicians included have tried to pigeonhole him, however, the man is far more complicated than the surface indicates. This is, after all, a man who voted for Eugene Debs, one of the best known Socialists of the United States, but was vehemently opposed to Franklin Roosevelt and The New Deal. It is this man that is seen in his poems that are often dialectic between chaos and order.
