frost-farmThis Sunday, August 23rd, Shannon will be speaking at the Robert Frost Farm in Derry, New Hampshire, at 2 p.m. If you live nearby or will be in the area, stop by to hear about literary travel in New England, elsewhere in the U.S., and abroad.

Before or after the presentation, you can take a tour of the Frost farmhouse and hike the Hyla Brook Nature/Poetry Trail. Keep an eye out for two particularly notable sites: the stone-wall boundaries evoked in Frost’s poem “Mending Wall” and the stream he immortalized in “Hyla Brook.”
