Walt Whitman's birthday

Thursday, 31 May 2018

On this day, in 1819, Walt Whitman was born.

"The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity."

You can read his poems, you can even hear his voice, but you'll never be able to meet him - book one of our poets today and meet an author in action.
