Emerson, Thoreau, and Frost: A Conversation with Jay Parini

April 27, 2021 7:00 PM — 8:00 PM


Join poet, novelist, biographer, and critic Jay Parini in a wide-ranging discussion of three granite figures of New England and American literature: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Robert Frost.  A faculty member at Middlebury College, Professor Parini’s most recent book, Borges and Me: An Encounter, has been described as a “poignant and comic literary coming-of-age memoir.”
