Bravo to my friend Ed Centeno and The Wood Memorial Library and Musem for an upcoming collaboration on Whitman to honor 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!
