DORSET - The Dorset Historical Society has announced the Third Thursday Lunch Series, which will be held at the Bley House Museum. Featured on May 15 will be Lea Neuman, the director of the Robert Frost Stone House Museum in Shaftsbury.

Her topic is "Robert Frost: The People, Places and Stories Behind his New England Poetry." Her book of this same title was published in 2000 when the Friends of Robert Frost became an official organization.

Retiring in 1995 from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts as a Professor of English, Neuman enjoyed her students' responses to the poetry of Frost. She is also known for her literary love of Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Those planning to attend should bring a brown bag lunch. Dessert and refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit dorsetvthistory.org.

The Dorset Historical Society is located at Kent Hill Road and Route 30 in Dorset.
