A poetry extravaganza is taking place tomorrow, Sunday, October 10th, at 3:00 p.m. at the Robert Frost Farm in Derry, New Hampshire, as part of the nationwide celebrations for a brand new, literary-themed holiday — Dead Poets Remembrance Day. A dozen New Hampshire poets will read selections from the works of the state’s bygone bards like Frost, Jane Kenyon, Odgen Nash, Robert Lowell, and Celia Thaxter.
