Johnsburg Salutes Adirondack Poet & Critic Jeanne Robert Foster

This weekend the Town of Johnsburg, in the south-central Adirondacks, is paying tribute to the life of Adirondack poet and famous literary critic Jeanne Robert Foster. Born in 1879 on Crane Mountain near Johnsburg, her beauty, talent and energy led her to the stage in New York City, and into the literary circles of William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, T.S.

Todd Moe talks with some of the organizers of this weekend's tribute to Jeanne Robert Foster in North Creek.  Go to full article
