America’s great poet of snowy evenings and good New England fences may seem an unlikely match with San Diego’s beach and sunshine culture, but that’s not how the international Robert Frost Society sees it.
The society has found a home at San Diego’s downtown Central Library. The library will serve as a permanent center for the study of Frost’s work. It’s the society's first permanent home, since its founding in 1978.
Rancho Santa Fe resident Jim Hurley, who is a writer and businessman, offered to help the organization find a home in San Diego after he became involved with the society when he wrote a piece for their quarterly magazine about meeting Frost in college.
Hurley and San Diego Public Library Director Misty Jones join Midday Edition on Monday to discuss Frost and becoming the new home for the society and a collection of Frost's work.
