|Listen to NPR interview with Jay Parini|
Parini was asked by Addison County State's Attorney John Quinn to teach a class to the students as part of a diversion program that included community service and, in some cases, paying for the damage caused during the party. More than two dozen students participated in the two Frost sessions taught by Parini. Students who complete the diversion program will have the incident wiped from their records.
Jay Parini is author of the Robert Frost biography titled "Robert Frost: A Life" (2000). His NPR interview is available here.
