Spotlighting Emily Dickinson, One of America's Greatest Poets
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.
