Join us for a morning of word-play and discovery at the Emily Dickinson Museum! Earn the Junior Scribe Badge (not included) while learning about the trailblazing poet, Emily Dickinson, and her writing life. During this behind-the-scenes museum experience, you will visit rooms inside Dickinson's 1813 home and explore the rich surroundings of her landscape. You will harness your inner poet, utilize the power of language to express opinions, and explore sense of self through writing. Other activities include crafting a fascicle -- the bound journal preferred by Dickinson, herself -- to record thoughts throughout the program, reading letters sent over 100 years ago, and stepping into Dickinson's shoes by writing at a replica of her very own desk!
