An Intimate Afternoon with Emily Dickinson
Although she permitted fewer than a dozen of her 1,800 poems to be published during her lifetime, today Emily Dickinson is considered one of America’s greatest poets and has remained continuously in print since 1890. For this performance, the year is 1880. You are Emily’s special guest at her home in Amherst, Massachusetts. Let’s hear what this brilliant, reclusive woman has to say. Adapted and performed by Betsey Means, Artistic Director of Womanlore. Betsey recently brought us Juliette Gordon Low (Girl Scouts), Mother Jones, and A Holocaust Memoir.
