10th Annual Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” Marathon Reading
Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn
Join us in welcoming back the annual marathon reading of Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself.” Led by NYU Professor Karen Karbiener, we’ll declare Whitman’s all-embracing lines from Brooklyn’s front stoop, in full and magnificent view of his beloved Mannahatta.
You don’t have to read to participate–but if you’d like to, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your favorite three sections of “Song of Myself” (using the 1891-1892 edition’s breakdown of 52 sections). Readings will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you’re a reader, please arrive no later than 2:30 p.m.
