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 5 partner is Amherst-Pelham Regional High School, a four-year comprehensive regional public school serving the towns of Amherst, Pelham, Leverett, and Shutesbury, Massachusetts.

In this session we will read poems numbered 919-1175 in the Franklin.

For this program, readers will be members of the Amherst Regional High School community. To register as a listener for this session, click here.
