Poets House's own Michael Romanos introduces two of the most famous American poets of the 19th Century: Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman. Inspired by their revolutionary poetry and fascinating life stories, children will write their own poetic letters to the poets.
Join us for a morning of baseballs and bees as Douglas Florian reads hilarious poems from his two latest books Poem Runs and UnBEElievables. There will be line drives on paper and sweet verse in a workshop to follow.
