The photography of Alice Garik will also be showcased during one of the poems. The event will also include local Brooklyn poet, Christine Hamm, who will read her original poetry.
Guests are welcome to participate in an open mic and read poems written or inspired by Walt Whitman. There will also be a short presentation about the life and poetry of Whitman, as well as free cupcakes!
