Frost Season: The Poetry of Frost in Story and Song

Wednesday, February 3rd

Presented by Walt Woodward

 Join state historian Walt Woodward to enjoy the works of American poet Robert Frost paired with songs that reflect and amplify the power of New England’s most beloved poet’s words. Register by sending an email to librarydirector@chaplinct.org.

Robert Frost was a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner for volumes of his poetry. Walter Woodward was once a hit songwriter and is now an award-winning author of books about New England history and an Associate Professor of History at the University of Connecticut.  A long-time admirer of Frost, Woodward presents a unique tribute to Frost–  a lecture, love story, poetry reading, and song-pairing, all in one.
