Walt Whitman Bicentennial

28 May

This week marks the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman’s birth, and celebrations are planned for both sides of the Delaware River. This is part of a year of celebrations including art exhibits, poetry readings, musical performances, ambles through old Whitman haunts, Whitman impersonators, a Walt Whitman mustache look-alike contest and much more: https://www.whitmanat200.org/events-by-month

At Bindlestiff, our window features several editions of Whitman’s poetry, children’s books introducing Whitman to younger readers, and biographies and other explorations of his continuing influence.
