Rose Solari Joins in a Dickinson Tradition at this Year’s Tell it Slant Festival
For the first time, Tell it Slant Festival is going digital. Make sure you catch the final days of the Emily Dickinson Poetry Marathon.
While the Emily Dickinson poetry marathon is not a marathon in the traditional sense, it does test the endurance, fortitude, and preparedness of all its participants. Over a seven day period, 14 hours in all, participants will read every one of the enigmatic 19th-century poet's 1,789 poems in the order prescribed by R.W. Franklin's The Poems of Emily Dickinson.
This year's Tell it Slant Festival, for the first time, is entirely virtual. This means that it is open to anyone who wishes to watch the spectacle of 20 or so professional poets reading the entirety of Dickinson's oeuvre.
One of the poets reading on day 4, September 17th, will be ASP's own Rose Solari. Solari will be reading from poems 661-918. Day four is hosted by none other than the Folger's Shakespeare Library. Anyone can register as a listener HERE.
