Celebrate Emily Dickinson's 183rd birthday with Peter Gizzi (Threshold Songs), a poet who has been called Dickinson's modern-day heir. Gizzi will be discussing the great American poet's legacy, in addition to reading from his own work. Hovering between grief and joy, the abstract and the concrete, Gizzi's poetry explores the hardships and pleasures in life. A former poetry editor for The Nation, Gizzi has garnered numerous awards and fellowships, and has taught at Brown and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Learn More
