The Emily Dickinson Birthday Tribute
December 10, 2018 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Emily Dickinson Birthday Tribute is an annual tradition at the Folger. This year’s reading and conversation engages with Dickinson scholar Martha Nell Smith and artist/poet Jen Bervin, creator of The Gorgeous Nothings: Emily Dickinson’s Envelope Poems—the first full-color facsimile edition of Dickinson’s manuscripts, which reproduces her experimental late work composed on scraps of envelopes. The reading is followed by a wine reception and book signing. Dickinson’s famous Black Cake recipe will be served, provided by The Suga Chef.
