Walt Whitman: America's Poet of the Open Road
Ashland, Oregon - All are welcome to the Friends of the Ashland Public Library Annual Meeting on Sunday, March 29, from 1:00 to 2:30 at the Ashland Library.
A brief business meeting precedes a wonderful program where Tim Holt will present the poems and life of Walt Whitman.
In this one-man performance, Tim Holt takes on the role of Walt Whitman, presenting his life and work in poetry and prose. Holt, as Whitman,
celebrates the energy, the sprawling expanse and diversity of America in the mid-19th century.
Whitman was the unabashed bard of our fledgling democracy. He took the creed that "all men are created equal" and made it sing: "I celebrate myself, And what
I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you."
This program is presented by the Friends of the Ashland Public Library. For more information please call 541-774-6996 or visit jcls.org.
