Event Description: 

Actor Stephen Collins will present excerpts from the Michael Keany play Unlaunch’d Voices: An Evening with Walt Whitman in the recently restored 1793 carriage house at Gore Place. The play relies on Whitman’s poetry, Whitman’s own words,and on the book Walt Whitman In Camden, a six-volume collection of daily conversations with Whitman, written by his friend and neighbor, Horace Traubel. Stephen endeavors to leave the audience with a greater insight into the man and poet as well with an appreciation of Walt Whitman as an eternally free spirit. The presentation will be followed by a discussion about the art of telling stories.
