Membership Statement

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring. You come, too.

Thanks to the help of people like you, the Robert Frost Foundation has become one of the most active and successful community-based 
poetry organizations in the country.

Since its founding in 1997 the Frost Foundation has demonstrated how to put poetry at its best into real people's lives at our annual festival in October and many poetry events througout the year.
& thanks to the generosity of Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney, the Frost Foundation is publishing  his 2002 lecture, One On A Side: An Evening With Seamus Heaney & Robert Frost.  This hardcover volume, newly edited by the Nobel Laureate,  provides a sure path to the poems of Frost & Heaney for long-time poetry fans or even those "completely shy of poetry." 

Everyone purchasing a copy of One On A Side at $19.95  will receive an invitation to the wine and cheese party marking the publication of 
One On A Side
on Friday May 30 at the South Lawrence  Branch of the Lawrence Library at 135 Parker Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts.  

Send your check today to guarantee that your copy will be waiting for you at the book party.*

Meanwhile, we need your help. The Robert Frost Foundation is kicking off its annual membership drive and we respectfully ask for your support to help us continue to producing educational programming of uncompromising quality.

Leadership circle members, contributing $300 will receive a hardbound copy of One On A Side: An Evening With Seamus Heaney & Robert Frost as well as a special acknowledgement at the book party and on the Leadership Circle page of that book.  Your contribution will continue to put prized books like this one, Frost poetry medals, and service awards in the hands of students, teachers, and aspiring poets in Lawrence and throughout the world.
