Literature Program Annual Marathon Poetry Reading

Wednesday, April 26, 2023
10:00 am
Ernst Nature Theatre, (in case of rain, find us in nearby Peabody Hall)

Join the Literature Program to participate in a live, all-day-long reading of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass! All are welcome! If you'd like to sign up to read for a 5 minute slot, do so here.

We will begin reading at 8:00 am sharp and continue without stopping until we finish, which will be around 8:00 pm (we hope!), Plenty of copies of the book will be on hand for readers to use.

Bring a book to swap! Zero Waste Oxfordwill be hosting a Book Swap throughout the event.

There will be snacks, drinks, puzzles, games, books, and prizes throughout the day, not to mention a lot of interesting people!

Be prepared to be a little flexible, since we may not be exactly on time.
