Join the Duke University Libraries as we celebrate Walt Whitman's 200th birthday with readings and remarks by Richard H. Brodhead, President Emeritus and William Preston Few Professor of English, on why he loves the "Good Gray Poet" and you should, too.

If you've ever wanted to know more about America's most famous bard, now is your chance to take a short course (with no grades or quizzes!) from one of the foremost experts on the subject.

Guests will also be invited to view original Whitman manuscripts and materials from one of the most significant Whitman collections in the world, right here in Duke's Rubenstein Library.
