Gilbert Discusses Frost Poems

Peter Gilbert, the Vermont Humanities Council’s executive director, will lead a discussion of a trio of Robert Frost’s spring poems at the Dorset Inn on Sunday, April 27, at 3 p.m. The discussion is free and open to the public and will take place in the Inn’s living room. The event is presented with the Dorset Village Library. The discussion will focus on three of Robert Frost’s most-loved poems, each about spring: ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay,’ ‘Two Tramps in Mud Time,’ and ‘Mending Wall.’

Gilbert has been VHC’s executive director since 2002 and is the literary executor of the Robert Frost estate. Since 2008, he has led discussions of Frost poems for VHC as part of the ‘You Come Too’ series, which began at VHC in Montpelier, Vt. Participants may read the poems in advance or read them upon arriving. For more information, call Dorset Village Library at 802-867-5774.
