“Reading Robert Frost” Discussion with poet Casey FitzSimons, November 8th at Florey's!

Florey’s Book Company welcomes Redwood City poet Casey FitzSimons for the first in a series of discussions of Robert Frost’s poems. Casey is a widely published poet writing in form and free verse. She has a background in visual art, editing, and criticism. Her chapbooks include Standing in the Open House (2013) and The Breeze Was Mine: Poems in Form (2013). She has a master’s degree in Fine Arts from San José State University.

From Casey:

“We’ll develop our powers of poetic interpretation using well-known works of Robert Frost, one of America’s most famous and most accessible poets. We’ll read and discuss

Mending Wall
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
The Road Not Taken

Some of the topics we’ll touch on are types of poems, poetic theme, metaphor and meaning, and poetic form (including rhythm and rhyme).”


This is a free discussion event. Non-poets are welcome. Poem copies will be provided. No need to commit to other sessions. Walk-ins are welcome, but if you know you’ll attend, RSVP to or (650) 224-9857, or contact her with specific questions.


We hope to see you!
