Dan Chiasson Poetry Reading & Frost Talk
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Visit the Robert Frost Stone House Museum for an evening with the New Yorker's poetry critic, and Lorraine C. Wang Professor of English at Wellesley College, Dan Chiasson. He will read from his work and talk about the life and work of Robert Frost. Seating is first-come, first-served.
Frost was the subject of a New Yorker article Chiasson wrote in 2014 titled "Bet the Farm," a review of the first volume of Frost's collected letters.
From Dan Chiasson's Wellesley College bio: "I write poems when I am able, and write reviews and essays the rest of the time. I'm the poetry critic for the New Yorker, where I've been a contributor since 2000. I write regularly about poetry, art, and popular music for The New York Review of Books. I have published five books, most recently Bicentennial (Knopf, 2014). My next project is The Moonkeeper's Son, a children's book. I teach poetry of all periods, with an emphasis on recent American poets."
