What a year for Frost Place poets and poetry!
The Frost Place would like to congratulate Rebecca Foust, Poet Laureate of Marin County, former Dartmouth Poet in Residence at the Frost Place (2015), and current Frost Place Board Member for the inclusion of her collection The Unexploded Ordnance Bin (Swan Scythe Press).
Ilya Kaminsky, guest reader for the 2019 Frost Place Summer Reading Series, also made the list for Deaf Republic (Graywolf), which was also a National Book Award finalist. Oliver Baez Bendorf, 2019 Conference on Poetry faculty, is on the list for Advantages of Being Evergreen (Cleveland State University Poetry Center). Vermont Poet Laureate and former Frost Place Dartmouth Poet Laureate (1999) Mary Ruefle is on the list for Dunce (Wave Books). Ruefle’s book was also long-listed for the 2019 National Book Award.
Congratulations to all of these fine poets. We are proud to be associated with them all!
