Friday, April 18, at 1:30 p.m. at The Summit of Uptown
 
The audience will have the opportunity to be the special guests of Emily Dickenson in her own home in Amherst, Massachusetts. Considered one of America’s greatest poets, Emily Dickinson was born in 1830 to a prominent Amherst, Massachusetts family. Living most of her life in her father’s house, Emily wrote poetry of great power, questioning the nature of immortality and death. In spite of encouragement and opportunity, she refused to publish more than a few poems during her lifetime. After her death in 1886, her sister Lavinia discovered a box containing hundreds of poems. Those poems were first published in 1890.
