The following event, I highly recommend.
Jane Yolen is a prolific writer. I have been blessed to participate in a seminar in which Jane was a featured speaker. I learned so much from her! I also love that she wrote a book in collaboration with her daughter, Heidi E. Y. Stemple. What a great way to share what you love best!
In May, Jane will delight her readers with a visit to the Emily Dickinson Museum
The following is a press release from the museum:

In My Uncle Emily, Yolen spins an imaginative story of Emily Dickinson's young nephew Gilbert as he struggles through a difficult day at school and at home. Gilbert calls his Aunt "Uncle" because it is a family joke, but it is just the beginning of his problems as he attempts to defend his creative and unusual Aunt to his schoolmates. Through his battles and his Aunt's poetry, Gilbert learns a lesson in what matters most.
Jane Yolen and illustrator Nancy Carpenter bring to life 19th-century Amherst and the Dickinson family homes--the Homestead and The Evergreens--in this beautiful and charming children's book.
I hope I see you there!
