Join us on Saturday, June 1st to experience Mabel Loomis Todd’s Amherst–from her earliest residence at the Amherst House hotel to her final resting place in Wildwood Cemetery. This extended tour given from Mrs. Todd’s perspective will be narrated by Dr. Julie Dobrow as we travel in motorbus comfort with stops at the Homestead and Evergreens, the Observatory, and Wildwood Cemetery. Be prepared to learn about the artistic and literary achievements that made Mabel extraordinary in her own time, and a fascinating person to study today. The tour will start at 1pm and go until 5pm.
We know Emily Dickinson today because Mabel Loomis Todd possessed the intellect, energy, and ability to guarantee that Emily’s poems were published.
