In collaboration with the Emily Dickinson Museum, The Emily Dickinson International Society 2017 Annual Meeting will be held Aug. 11-12 in our favorite spot, Amherst. “Edenic Possibilities: Reading and Writing about Emily Dickinson” will feature exciting new scholarship by alum of the EDIS Critical Institutes, reading groups facilitated by well-known scholars meeting in the environs of Emily Dickinson’s home and gardens, musical performances, tours of the Dickinson houses, literary walks, and the pleasure of picnicking on the grounds of those homes. This is a fantastic opportunity for meeting new and reuniting with old friends, all fellow travelers in reading Dickinson’s writings, learning about her cultural, natural, and familial surroundings.

The Lord Jeffrey Inn has set aside a block of rooms with special EDIS rates that are offered from August 8-14. To obtain special rates, please use “EDISMGT” when you book your reservation. The Lord Jeff is a delightful place to stay, one frequented by Emily Dickinson’s niece Martha Dickinson Bianchi and other Dickinson luminaries.
