Song of Myself - A reading of Walt Whitman's iconic poem. May 20 at 5:30pm. $20
Featuring: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, Monique Truong, Adam Haslett, Péter Zilahy, John Hockenberry and many more!
"Free Verse for a Free Nation!" features readings by artists, poets, writers and vagabonds. The reading is a celebration of the artistic spirit, just like the barges that traveled the East River during Walt Whitman's day. Thanks to Marie Helene Carleton and Micah Garen of Four Corners Media for creating this happening.
Come support the Waterfront Barge Museum, the ACLU, PEN America, the NEA and Sunny's Bar, with a night of poetry, the sunset over the Brooklyn waterfront and Walt Whitman's favorite snack. The first reading will begin at 5:30PM and an after party will take place at Sunny's Bar.
