Poem in Your Pocket Day 2018

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Join The Emily Dickinson Museum and The Academy of American Poets in celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day! Every April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day  and on social media using the hashtag #pocketpoem.

On April 26, The Emily Dickinson Museum will grant free admission all day to any visitors who can recite a Dickinson poem from memory. Bring a budding poet for free activities. Make a "Poem Catcher" craft, decorate a miniature pot and plant seeds from Emily Dickinson's own garden, or take a Story Walk through the Dickinson landscape.

This event is free and open to the public, no reservations required.
