Poetry in the Planetarium

Fri, Sep 15 2017 - 8:00pm to 9:30pm
Bassett Planetarium, Morgan Hall

Amherst College’s Bassett Planetarium will host the first reading from poet Dara Wier’s newest bookIn the Still of the Night from Wave Books. She will be joined by poet and artist Bianca Stone. As Wier and Stone read, the planetarium’s analogue Spitz A3p optical projector, one of the last of its kind still in use, will display the starscapes on the nights of Emily Dickinson’s birth and death. This event is free, but seating is limited.
