Walt Whitman: America's Poet of the Open Road

Saturday, August 24, 2019, 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Tim Holt takes on the role of Walt Whitman, presenting his life and work in poetry and prose. Holt, as Whitman, celebrates the energy, sprawling expanse and diversity of America in the mid-19th century. Whitman's saga includes his early years growing up on Long Island, his newspaper career, his encounters with Abraham Lincoln and Ralph Waldo Emerson, and his heart-wrenching visits with suffering and dying soldiers during the Civil War--the life experiences that went into the making of "Leaves Of Grass." Join us to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman's birth.
