As part of a series of events celebrating Bold, Cautious, True: Walt Whitman and American Art of the Civil War Era now on exhibit, the Katonah Museum of Art  presents novelist Benjamin Cheever in "An Evening With Walt."

Organized by the Museum’s writer in-residence Pam Hart Rago, “An Evening With Walt” will connect Whitman’s poetry to the visual arts culture of the period using Bold, Cautious, True as a backdrop. Cheever will re-imagine the voice of Whitman reading excerpts from Song of Myself with select members of the community responding with contemporary works by Ezra Pound, Langston Hughes, and Alan Ginsberg, among others. Readers include author and Katonah resident Judy Blundell, 2008 National Book Award winner for the Young Adult novel What I Saw and How I Lied.
