The secret life of Emily Dickinson
Did you know the agoraphobic literary genius Emily Dickinson carried on a love-affair with her sister-in-law throughout much of her life? I sure didn’t. Join poet Marie Howe and the director of the 2018 film Wild Nights with Emily starring Molly Shannon as Dickinson for an intimate conversation about the poet’s life and work. Housing Works Bookstore + Cafe in Soho is hosting the free event on Wednesday night at 7pm, so you can make it your own wild literary night by perusing their wide selection of used books for sale and grabbing a glass of wine. RSVP here.
