Who was Emily Dickinson? What most people know is that she was a recluse who only wore white. But is that an accurate portrait of her? Come and spend time examining Dickinson’s life, her mystical spirituality, and the musicality of her poems. We will also explore the various aspects of her poetry as they relate to her understanding of God and the religious milieu in which she lived. We invite you to join us in learning about this brilliant and surprising woman who wrote over 1800 poems during her lifetime.
