      > $1,000 award from The Frost Place and $1,000 from Dartmouth College.
      > The poet will have several opportunities to give readings across the
      > region, including at Dartmouth College, for which the poet will
      > receive a $1,000 honorarium.
      > The house, built in 1859 and owned by the Frost family from 1915 to
      > 1920, is spartan, but comfortable. The Frost Place Museum is open to
      > the public during afternoon hours, and a portion of the house is
      > closed off for the resident poet.
