Book Launch with Cristanne Miller

Please join us at Hallwalls for a reading and signing to launch The Letters of Emily Dickinson,

co-edited by distinguished UB English Professor Cristanne Miller.

This new edition of Emily Dickinson’s correspondence co-edited (with Domhnall Mitchell) by the noted Dickinson scholar offers a transformative portrait of the famous American poet that takes readers beyond vague notions of Dickinson’s loneliness and isolation to reveal instead an intensely interactive and deeply involved member of a community who was very much engaged with friends, family, and the unfolding events of her time.

The Letters of Emily Dickinson is the first comprehensive collection of Dickinson’s letters since Thomas H. Johnson and Theodora Ward published their edition more than 60 years ago.

This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Talking Leaves.

Cristanne Miller received her PhD in 1980 from the University of Chicago, and was for many years the W.M. Keck Distinguished Service Professor at Pomona College. Since 2006 she has taught at the University at Buffalo where she is SUNY Distinguished Professor and Edward H. Butler Professor of English.

Domhnall Mitchell is a professor of English literature at the Department of Language and Literature, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway.
