Join us as the Jones Library hosts part 2 of the week-long Emily Dickinson Poetry Marathon!

An Emily Dickinson Museum tradition and a cornerstone of the annual Poetry Festival, the Poetry Marathon is a group reading of all 1,789 poems by Emily Dickinson over the course of about 14 hours. For this year’s remote Festival, the Emily Dickinson Museum is partnering with five other organizations to host the Marathon in two-hour sessions each day of this week.

You must register in advance to participate via Zoom as a reader or as a listener!  Register here.
