America and Me: Walt Whitman and Leaves of Grass with William Kinsolving

walt_whitman

Noble Horizons invites you back to school summer style, with mini-enrichment classes taught by one of the area’s finest teachers.

Best-selling author, playwright and actor William Kinsolving will teach America and Me: Walt Whitman and Leaves of Grass. The participatory class will explore Whitman's life, the history of his times, his 'pomes,' (he refused to say the word any other way), and his conflicts with the times. The class will culminate in Kinsolving’s July 21, 5 pm performance of his newest play, America and Me, a dramatization on the occasion of Walt Whitman’s 67th birthday of his musings on Lincoln, the Civil War, 19th Century America, sensory proclivities, and the struggles of publishing Leaves of Grass. The four classes preceding the presentation meet from 10-11am on July 11, 12, 18 and 19.

The fee for each mini-enrichment class series is $25.
