The festival starts with a bang, as Walt Whitman Birthplace Association hosts the Festival Within's Friday Night Kickoff Party at Book Revue in Huntington. The Kickoff will feature a diverse group of poets from Scribner's Best of the Best American Poetry: 25th Anniversary Edition. Boasting a line-up of dynamic poets, such as David Lehman, Kim Addonizio, Tom Sleigh, and others, the night promises to provide a taste of the day and evening to come. Featured poets will introduce themselves, read briefly and sign books.
