Listen Back to StoryCorps in NH

The StoryCorps Mobile Booth

Interviews at the StoryCorps Mobile Booth begin with a question, but the exciting part is the answer. Because, whether it’s from someone we know and love, or from someone we’ve just met, the answer tells us something we didn’t know.

StoryCorps is celebrating 10 years of recording the stories of average Americans. We thought it would be a good time to listen back to some of the stories we recorded when the StoryCorps Mobile Booth came to Concord in 2007, and Berlin in 2009.

Susan Snively: Jumbo And Little Phil: Emily Dickinson's Romance With Otis Phillips Lord

Credit via Monadnock Lyceum

Since the posthumous publication of her poems in the 1890’s, Emily Dickinson has been portrayed as a virginal recluse, a mental case, and a victim of a broken heart. Susan Snively’s talk challenges these myths by discussing the poet’s letters to the powerful Judge Otis Phillips Lord, a widower who had been her late father’s best friend. Unpublished until 1954, the letters reveal a playful, tender, passionate Emily, happy in a mutual love that graced her middle age.
