Warlock Vorobok Call Forth Emily Dickinson’s Spectral Poems

Written by Adam Vorobok, Reference Librarian, Downtown Main Library

Famously reclusive, Emily Dickinson hid her poetry out of sight until after her death. It is no surprise she should leave us some sepulchral poems about ghosts and decaying corpses. Gather round as the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library's resident Warlock reads three of Dickinson's supernatural poems in his final spectral reading of 2022.
