The 1.5 hour tour begins at 1:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Participants should meet on the lawn of the Emily Dickinson Museum located at 280 Main Street in Amherst, Massachusetts.
Stopping at five sites in Amherst, the route includes some moderate uphill walking. In case of inclement weather the walk will take place on Sunday, October 24, at 1:30 p.m.
Emily Dickinson met her match in the formidable Margaret Maher - a maid whom the poet described as "warm and wild and mighty." The two women shared much of the day and a respect for the power of poetry. This tour will re-draw what we think we know about a famous poet and American literature.
