Tomorrow: Robert Frost & the Forests of Vermont

Our community church is hosting a talk about an important Ripton figure, tomorrow:

“Robert Frost & the Forests of Vermont”

a talk by Professor John Elder

Sunday, July 25th Starting at 4 pm at The Ripton Community Church

Professor Elder will look at some of the ways in which Robert Frost’s poetry both explores and is illuminated by the forests of Vermont. Frost was an excellent naturalist, whose ability to perceive seasonal change in the landscapes around him also brought a measure of stability to his intense inner life. Those of us who are privileged to live in the same place where one of the century’s greatest poets once worked are truly blessed.
