Emily Dickinson Poetry Discussion Group

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm Frost Library, Center for Humanistic Inquiry

The Emily Dickinson Museum’s Poetry Discussion Group meets monthly, September through May, for lively conversation about Emily Dickinson’s poetry and letters. Featured facilitators offer fresh perspectives on Dickinson’s poetry each month. Past topics have included "Tropic Hints," "Emily Dickinson’s Planet," "The Color White" and "Emily Dickinson’s Varmints."

The Poetry Discussion Group meets at the Center for Humanistic Inquiry, on the second floor of Amherst College’s Frost Library. Participants should proceed directly to the library and do not need to stop at the museum. While no R.S.V.P. is required, participants are invited to email edmprograms@emilydickinsonmuseum.org to receive a list of poems for discussion. Attendees are welcome to bring a bag lunch. Beverages and a sweet snack are provided. The fee for Museum Friends is $12/session and the general fee is $15/session.

May’s Poetry Discussion Group will be facilitated by Polina Barkskova.
