Emily Dickinson's 'Life After Death'

On Saturday, May 16 at 2 p.m., The Emily Dickinson International Society, DC Chapter, presents Eleanor Heginbotham, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Concordia University Saint Paul and Board Member of EDIS, D.C. Chapter.

On the day after the 129th anniversary of the death of America's great poet, Dr. Heginbotham will discuss how the poet lived on in her publishing history and what she says to us about "immortality" from beyond the grave.

Dr. Heginbotham has published two books and several articles on Emily Dickinson.

In anticipation of the event, please enjoy Emily Dickinson's classic poem, "I’m Nobody! Who are you?":


I’m Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there’s a pair of us!
Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog – 
To tell one’s name – the livelong June – 
To an admiring Bog!
