The YLLA is the reason we have our wonderful Pease Library and the YLLA continues to support the library in a variety of ways. To celebrate their anniversary, they have curated an exhibition showcasing some of the highlights of their first 150 years in the former home of the library, the Old Webster Courthouse.

Program - Walking in the Woods with Robert Frost

Do you know which two of Robert Frost’s beloved poems have special ties to Plymouth? Do you know how teaching at Plymouth Normal School led to a major turning point in Frost’s life?

 

Join us for “Walking in the Woods with Robert Frost: Seeing nature through the words of America’s most-loved poet,” a program to be held on November 15, 2023, at the Plymouth Historical Society at 5:30 pm.

 

Robert Frost’s poetry offers an intimate look at nature. In this program, author and poet Jeffrey Zygmont recites a selection of Frost’s nature poems, including some of his best-known works. Alongside each recitation, he provides background on Frost’s life, offering insight into the poem’s origins.

 

Participants will join in a lively discussion and celebration of Frost’s work that will deepen their appreciation for both the poet and New Hampshire’s natural environment. We will also share some stories about Frost’s time in Plymouth, when he and his family lived in what is now Frost House on the PSU campus, not far from the popular Robert Frost statue in front of Rounds Hall, where the poet once taught.

 

This Humanities-To-Go program on Frost is provided by New Hampshire Humanities and co-sponsored by the Plymouth Historical Society and Pease Public Library. Funding also comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The program is free and open to the public.
