Emily Dickinson in February

 YubaSutterReads-EmilyD

Yuba Sutter Reads: Emily Dickinson, a month-long celebration of the iconic American poet, will take place during February 2015.

The Arts Council made the announcement on Dec. 10, the poet’s 184th birthday. Materials will be available on this website, beginning December 15.

Similar in structure to YSA’s past productions of “The Big Read,” which were made possible by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Emily Dickinson program also will provide free books for middle school, high school and college students, and printable poetry and projects for grades K-6, but will be funded solely by community contributions.-- Read more
