Walt Whitman 200th Birthday Celebration

Walt Whitman 200th Birthday Celebration

Adults Poetry and literature lovers are invited to join us for a special celebration marking the 200th birthday of Walt Whitman!

One of the most celebrated and beloved poets of all time, Whitman was born May 31, 1819 in New York. He is author of the classic collection "Leaves of Grass" and also worked as a teacher and journalist during his lifetime. Local fans of his work are encouraged to pick out a favorite poem or two to share with others and, if the group is so inclined, we'll discuss what makes Whitman's work so special and why it resonates to this day.

Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7230 for more information.
