Emily Dickinson's "I Dwell in Possibility"

April 3rd, 2014, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Join us for "I Dwell in Possibility" with Emily Dickinson, adapted and performed by Betsey Means. Thought of an eccentric by the locals, Emily became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests, or later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were carried out by correspondence. Emily was a prolific private poet. Her poems questioned the nature of immortality and death. Through nature and life she was able to glimpse into a mystic dimension beyond worldly distractions. Emily is one of the most loved and certainly the greatest American woman poet.
