The Vermont Humanities Council not only is a great supporter of PoemCity, but they have annually contributed a program to the month’s schedule of events. As part of their “You Come Too” series, executive director Peter Gilbert leads a community discussion about a group of poems. The series started in November 2008 and has gained a good following here in Montpelier discussing British poets such as John Donne, William Wordsworth and T.S. Eliot and contemporary poets such as Billy Collins, Mary Oliver, and Seamus Heaney.
As part of PoemCity, the next “You Come Too” installment will be on Thursday, April 3rd at 5:30 at the Vermont Humanities Council. We’ll be discussing three of Robert Frost’s poems about Spring:
