Description


FIVE UP ON WALT will feature five people -- poets and members of the Kelly Writers House community -- each talking briefly about a Walt Whitman poem that has meant something to their poetry or writing practice. Part of Whitman at 200: Art and Democracy, a series of events at Penn and throughout the city marking the 200th anniversary of Whitman’s birth, this event will bring together writers from multiple genres and generations, each sharing and reckoning with the legacy of Whitman as a poet and as an American. This program is supported by the Eva and Leo Sussman Poetry Fund.
