Whitman Library Project -RSVP deadline: September 27, 2018

From an email:

This coming year — 2019 — welcomes the Bicentennial celebration of Huntington’s favorite son and America’s great poet, WALT WHITMAN.

As part of the celebration, we at the Walt Whitman Birthplace invite you to participate in the Whitman Library Project on Wednesday, October 3, 12:30 – 3 pm, at the Birthplace. Working with our community libraries, our project organizes library Read Out Loud events to introduce and re-introduce library patrons to Whitman’s remarkable verse.

Please attend our organizing meeting on October 3 and join your colleagues across Long Island.  And please designate one or two library staff members who might assume an important role in your library’s Whitman Library Project and ask them as well to attend the Wednesday, October 3, organizing meeting.  Refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP by Sept 27th your attendance and that of your staff member(s) at the Oct. 3 organizing meeting: call the Event Director at the Walt Whitman Birthplace, (631) 427-5240 x112 or email Cynthia Shor, Executive Director at director@waltwhitman.org

Any questions? Call Harriet Spitzer, assistant to the Executive Director: (631) 427-7335.

Let our libraries ring out with poetry as patrons join together in the group readings of Walt Whitman.  Thank you.
