In honor of Whitman’s 200th birthday, we celebrate the Bard of Brooklyn with music and poetry. The Phil Woodmore singers perform and poets DorianneLaux (Only As The Day Is Long; The Book of Men), Joseph Millar (Kingdom; Blue Rust) and other invited guests read “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry”. This event occurs simultaneously with readings of the poem at each of Brooklyn Public Library’s 59 branches. Albee Square is a public plaza located in Downtown Brooklyn at the intersection of Fulton Street, DeKalb Avenue, and Albee Square West.
