An Emily Dickinson Museum tradition, the 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, we are partnering with six other organizations to host the Marathon in two-hour sessions each day of this week. For the marathon, we will be reading from Ralph Franklin’s The Poems of Emily Dickinson: Reading Edition.

Our part 2 partner is the Jones library. This public library is a community hub to a diverse population of Amherst, Massachusetts residents, where books are celebrated and all members of the community can enhance their educational, cultural, and lifelong learning pursuits. To learn more about the Jones Library visit www.joneslibrary.org.

In this session we will read poems numbered 149-407 in the Franklin.
