Walt Whitman Bicentennial Celebration

Today, I’m off to celebrate the work of the great poet, Walt Whitman, in his hometown of Huntington.

First stop, the Walt Whitman Bicentennial Convention (Radisson Hotel, Hauppauge) where there will be readings by poets from New York and Virginia, followed by workshops and publisher’s Q&A breakout sessions. Then — if time allows — it’s onto his birthplace and historical site in Huntington Station.

Enjoy the day, read a poem, and remember to get outside into nature and “reckon a thousand acres” or at least a city block.
