A Tribute to Emily Dickinson with the Emily Dickinson Society, Washington DC Chapter — in the Den

Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 29, 2018 - 6:30pm

Emily Dickinson is not widely known for her humor, yet actors who set out to perform her poetry quickly learn how funny she is. Join us in the Den for a lively showcase of dramatic readings of her lesser-known poems, brought to life for this event by actors from the local theater scene. Following the performance, the ensemble of actors and several local Dickinson scholars will speak about the delicate art of dramatizing Dickinson’s life and work, in light of recent successes and failures on stage and screen.

Curated together as an ensemble tribute to Dickinson’s beautiful art, the event is designed to acquaint or reacquaint all with this poet’s unique brand of poetic mischief.
