Emily Dickinson Poetry Mini-Marathon
A reading of 295 of Dickinson's poems
EXERCISE YOUR CREATIVE SPIRIT IN A POETRY MINI-MARATHON!
In honor of National Poetry Month, the Emily Dickinson Museum will sponsor a poetry mini-marathon on Thursday, April 18, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Archives and Special Collections in Frost Library. We’ll read aloud all 295 of the poems that Emily Dickinson wrote in 1863 (150 years ago). This program is a mini-version of the marathon we hold each fall at the museum, when we read all 1,789 of Dickinson’s poems. The readings are done round-robin style, sitting in a circle, with people taking turns reading one poem each. No prior experience with Emily Dickinson or with reading poetry aloud is required!
During the program, items from the Archives’ vast collection of Dickinson material will be on display. Most important, we’ll have gingerbread and coconut cake, made from Dickinson’s recipes, for all to enjoy. Readers-- students, faculty, staff --are welcome to drop in at any time and stay for as long as they like.
