That epicenter of eclectic Carmel creativity is at it again. The Carl Cherry Center brings back Professor Barbara Mossberg for interpretive readings of Emily Dickinson. And the prof knows of whom she speaks. She's a Dickinson scholar, wrote a book about her called When a Writer is a Daughter and has been performing readings of her poems for 33 years. We may have no better authority on the reclusive and prolific poet who wrote powerfully on life, death and immortality. Luckily, Dickinson's deathbed instructions to her sister to burn her papers were less comprehensive, saving her poems for the immortality she wrote about. Mossberg celebrates the occasion with gingerbread, birthday candles and song. [WR]
