FREE VERSE FOR A FREE NATION!

 

On February 4th, the public was invited to inoculate themselves against despair — by attending  a reading of Walt Whitman’s epic poem Song of Myself!  Over two dozen poets from across the state of Michigan gathered together for this extraordinary reading, spearheaded by Michigan author Thomas Lynch — including Charlie Brice, Corrine Dagostino, Cindy Hunter Morgan, Anne-Marie Oomen, Jan Shoemaker, Kathleen Heideman, Teresa Scollon, Keith Taylor, Carrie and Tim Tebeau, Beverly Matherne and many more!  The reading was held at the Carnegie Library in Petoskey, MI.

“Dismiss whatever insults your own soul”
– Walt Whitman
