Emily Dickinson Marathon Part 6: Emily Dickinson International Society
September 19, 11am-1pm

The words "The Emily Dickinson Marathon Emily Dickinson International Society 6" in white overlaid on a tinted green image of Emily DickinsonJoin us for part 6 of the week-long Emily Dickinson Marathon! 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 6 partner is the Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS). EDIS is an international organization founded to “Promote, perpetuate and enhance the study and appreciation of Emily Dickinson worldwide.” The society publishes The Emily Dickinson Journal and The Emily Dickinson International Society Bulletin, as well as holding annual meetings and international conferences. 

In this session we will read poems numbered 1176-1413 in the Franklin.

Click here to  register as a reader or listener for part 6. Reader space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Readers must be present for the full duration of the program. Text of the poems will be screen-shared for readers who do not have their own poetry editions.
