Join us for a very special behind the scenes look at the holdings of the Jones Library’s Special Collections in Amherst, Massachusetts. Head of Special Collections, Cyndi Harbeson, gives you an up close and personal look at a unique Dickinson collection that places the poet within her nineteenth-century Amherst context. The holdings include approximately 7,000 items, including original manuscript poems and letters, Dickinson editions and translations, and family correspondence. Hear the stories these objects can tell and learn about recent work and acquisitions to the collection. A Q&A follows the presentation.
