Dinner with Walt - all things Walt Whitman

Whitman Presentation at Newark Public Library!

Materials for Whitman presentation at Newark Library

I am super excited to present Walt Whitman and introduce Leaves of Grass to the LGBTQ Book Club at the Newark Public Library for National Poetry Month!

Also, Whitman is featured on the poster this year for National Poetry Month! You can download or request a free copy of the poster here.

The image of the hand above is a bronze cast of Whitman’s hand made in April, 1881. I’d be interested to know where this relic is now–in the massive collection at the Library of Congress perhaps? If anyone has any insight on this, please share!
