    Contact: Valerie Overton   781-862-7966   LexPrideMA@gmail.com
   

At this event, we will explain the concept of intersectionality and how it plays out in our lives. The emcee will then facilitate brief, spontaneous conversations with volunteers from the audience who share their own experiences. After each conversation, the actors and musician immediately embody the key feelings and actions they heard, using movement, music, dialogue, and superb listening. All of it is improvised on the spot. During the course of the event, True Story will enact about 6-8 stories.

From these interactions, audience members gain insights and an expanded sense of community. We will conclude with a wrap-up about how we can incorporate insights into our daily lives at work and elsewhere.

Sponsored by LexPride. Cosponsored by several other community organizations.

Free and open to all.

Wheelchair accessible. Certified service dogs allowed. Assistive listening devices available. ASL interpreted. Gender neutral bathrooms available.

Book Lover’s Brunch, Saturday, April 4, 2020

10am-12pm, Large Meeting Room, Cary Library, Lexington, MA

Spotlighting Emily Dickinson, One of America's Greatest Poets

Guest Speakers:

Martha Ackmann, These Fevered Days: Ten Pivotal Moments in the Making of Emily Dickinson [Release date: February 25, 2020]

Julie Dobrow, After Emily: Two Remarkable Women and the Legacy of America’s Greatest Poet

National Poetry Month is coming and you can join the celebration by attending this year’s Book Lover’s Brunch, April 4, spotlighting Emily Dickinson, one of America’s greatest poets. Meet authors Martha Ackmann and Julie Dobrow, whose newly released books, These Fevered Days and After Emily, examine Dickinson’s life and work in original, radically different ways. Utilizing thousands of archived letters, poems and never-before-seen photos, Ackmann skillfully captures Dickinson’s inner life, adds new insight into her wildly original poetry, and vividly portrays one of American literature’s most enigmatic figure. Drawing on hundreds of never-before-published primary sources including hidden diaries, long-lost letters, photographs and scanned original manuscripts, Dobrow meticulously recounts the extraordinary untold story of mother-daughter editors Mabel Loomis Todd and Millicent Todd Bingham, who brought Dickinson’s genius to light.

This April 4 event includes book signings and is sponsored by the Friends of Cary Library. Seating is limited; registration at the online Cary Library Program Calendar is required and opens on March 4.
