The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents Robert Frost: New Light on Old Poems presented by Phil Holland, Ph.D.

Most of us have known poems by Robert Frost for as long as we can remember, and a few of us will remember the living poet, too, from President Kennedy's inaugural in 1960.  But perhaps we don't know the poems - or the poet - as well as we might think.  We'll take a brief look at Frost's life and a fresh look at a few of the old favorites, as well as at some wonderful poems that are less well known.

Phil Holland is a voice actor, writer, editor, translator, and creative consultant working from Vermont. He has been a teacher of English language and literature and a director of academic programs in the U.S., Greece, and France.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
