To Emily Dickinson, phosphorescence was a divine spark and the illuminating light behind learning — it was volatile, but transformative in nature. Produced by the Emily Dickinson Museum, the Phosphorescence Poetry Reading Series celebrates contemporary creativity that echoes Dickinson’s own revolutionary poetic voice. The Series features established and emerging poets whose work and backgrounds represent the diversity of the flourishing contemporary poetry scene.
Perugia poets Lynne Thompson, Jacqueline Balderrama, and Ida Stewart read in the series on Thursday, July 22, 2021. If you missed this program, you can watch the recording here.
