Becoming Emily Children's Book Launch & Signing

  • Books of Wonder 18 West 18th Street New York, NY (map)

Join Books of Wonder and author Krystyna Porav Goddu for the launch of her novel, Becoming Emily: The Life of Emily Dickinson.

In Becoming Emily, young readers will learn how as a child, an adolescent, and well into adulthood, Dickinson was a lively social being with a warm family life. Highly educated for a girl of her era, she actively engaged in both the academic and social aspects of the schools she attended until she was nearly eighteen. Her family and friends were important to her, and she was a prolific, thoughtful, and witty correspondent who shared many poems with her closest friends and relatives.

For fans of the history and poetry, Becoming Emily: The Life of Emily Dickinson is an amazing introduction for middle grade readers to one of America’s most celebrated poets. Krystyna Porav Goddu will give a talk and sign copies of all her books. Ages 10 & up.
