Description

From 1824 through the 1855 publication of Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman's relationships with Brooklyn's built and natural environments and the citizens who inhabited them left an indelible mark on his work. Join contemporary stewards of Whitman's Brooklyn legacies, including Greg Trupiano of The Walt Whitman Project, Charles Jarden and Julian Macrone of the Fort Greene Park Conservancy, and Karen Karbiener of NYU and the Walt Whitman Initiative, along with readers Lonely Christopher and Elizabeth Nunez and opera singer Nicole Mitchell for this immersive, multimedia exploration of Brooklyn’s Bard on the occasion of his 199th birthday.
