Our third annual Literary Feast will feature award-winning poet Tyehimba Jess against the beautiful backdrops of the Robert Frost Home and the Pavilion on the Green in Greenfield Village.

Climb aboard a horse-drawn carriage or Model T to make your way to the Frost Home for a reception at the very place where the famed poet wrote “Spring Pools” and other classic works.  Then open your imagination for the mixed-media experience of the Detroit-born Jess’ unconventional contemporary poetry at the Pavilion on the Green. Finally, enjoy a meal of farm-to-table fare from Michigan producers.

  • 6:00 p.m. Reception (hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine) and remarks at the Frost Home
  • 7:00 p.m. Farm-to-table meal at Pavilion on the Green and poetry program
  • 9:00 p.m. Event concludes

Tickets are limited, so please reserve early.
