Emily Dickinson's birthday

10 December

On this day, in 1830, Emily Dickinson was born.

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all."

Have you planned a book day to celebrate? If not, don't wait for World Book Day, book one of our poets today and meet a real live poet.
