INFORMATION ABOUT THE
2013 DOPE CONFERENCE IS BELOW.
OCTOBER 11 - 13
The Dickinson Organization of Poetry Enthusiasts (DOPE) and the Emmett Lee Dickinson Museum (above the coin-op Laundromat) in Washerst, PA, present the panelists, speakers and guests for the 2013 meeting of DOPE in October 2013 to celebrate the 210th birthday of Emmett Lee Dickinson, Emily Dickinson’s third cousin twice removed (at her request).
In a day and age when women weren’t educated, Griffin’s progressive parents sent Kathy to the Emmett Lee Dickinson for Boys in Manhattan as “Cory” Griffin. Griffin will speak on her love of Dickinson– and her life as “Cory” at the prestigious
boys’ school that bears his name.

James Earl Jones
Charles, Prince of Wales
Dateline’s Chris Hansen
The Corn Palace Mascot
from Mitchell, SD.
