Walt Whitman Initiative's Tane Poetry Library: Grand Opening

The Walt Whitman Initiative is thrilled to welcome you to the opening of our free, open-access Tane Poetry Library! Come peruse our 600-plus-volume-and-growing-collection, built entirely from donations from our generous supporters. Stay to enjoy performances by Tim Cusack (“I Ping the Body Electric”) and Compagnia de’ Colombari around our historic reading space, and to recite your favorite Whitman in full view of Walt's Brooklyn ferry! Snacks courtesy of our partner Fulton Stall Market, a non-profit public farmer's marketplace responsibly sourcing local products.
