Stony Brook University professors and award-winning poets Rowan Ricardo Phillips and Cornelius Eady will address Whitman’s impact in the U.S. and Caribbean, and on their own poetry. A selection of rare poetry works from SBU Libraries’ Special Collections will be on display at the program. Sponsored and supported by a FAHSS grant award, Run Run Shaw Fund, University Libraries, Humanities Institute, and the Department of English.
Date: Tuesday, April 2 from 1pm to 2pm
