Emily Dickinson at Poets House


See an exhibition of rare manuscripts, fragments of poems, letters, and even a recipe by the brilliant and famously reclusive poet (who would probably not be amused by this invasion of her privacy). Other rare books from the private Oresman collection will be on display as well. A don’t-miss for those who see the beauty in old yellowing pages covered by the scrawl of a great writer, capturing the first moment when her creative thoughts entered the world. Opening reception October 20 at 6 p.m.

Thu., Oct. 20, 6 p.m.; Oct. 20-Jan. 28, 2011
