celebrate NATIONAL POETRY MONTH with a reading of LEAVES OF GRASS

Celebrate poetry month at Skylight Books with Los Angeles poets reading from Walt Whitman's magnificent Leaves of Grass on Sunday, April 1st from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Walt Whitman began Leaves of Grass: "I celebrate myself,/ And what I assume you shall assume,/ For every atom belonging to me as good belong to you." Leaves of Grass celebrates the open road, camraderie, freedom, equality: "I am the poet of the woman the same as the man,/ and I say it is as great to be a woman as to be a man,/ and I say there is nothing greater than the mother of men."

A diverse group of some of Los Angeles' finest poets will join us to celebrate National Poetry Month by reading from this groundbreaking form, including James Cushing, Pam Ward, Holly Prado Northup, Harry Northup, Phoebe MacAdams Ozuna, Fernando Castro, Eloise Klein Healy, and S.A. Griffin
