Lucie Brock-Broido, director of poetry in the School of the Arts at Columbia University, reads selections from her book The Master Letters, inspired by three mysterious, unsent letters written by Emily Dickinson and found after her death. Brock-Broido’s other volumes of poetry include _Trouble in Mind _and A Hunger. The post-reading reception features black cake made from Dickinson’s own recipe.
