How did Robert Frost become the most celebrated American poet in history? Join us for an intimate evening inspired by his work and his influence on modern poetry and literature.
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.
