Walt Whitman Birthplace Association is always delighted to host school programs.
Our educator was phenomenal, and we all came away having understood Whitman more AND having created some poetry of our own. I just hope that everyone knows you’re all out there doing this great work. I have every intention of engaging with the poetry programs myself, and I hope to have students be more involved with the organization in the future. The Winchendon School, Brooklyn, NY, Grade 11
