An Evening with Walt Whitman'slegacy
Walt Whitman’s influence has been huge and long lasting. Yet even today aspects of his work and vision can be a challenge. This evening will explore some of the ways his poetry has influenced later writers including Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Langston Hughes, Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. We’ll also be Skype-linking with celebrations at the Grolier Club in New York where our US counterparts will also be commemorating the bicentenary. With Dave Morgan, Kevin Bates, Rosie Adamson-Clarke, Nat Clare, John Smeathers, Billie Meredith and others.
