A History of the Modern Whitman Walks by Stuart Murray.
The nineteenth century Bolton Whitmanites celebrated the poet's birthday each year on a Saturday near 31st May May. This tradition was revived in 1983 by a new generation of self-styled Whitmanites, inspired by Whitman’s focus on freedom and democracy, and has continued with an annual walk for the past 35 years. This presentation by Stuart Murray tells the story of these walks.
Monthly meet-up for the local spoken word group picks up on the celebratory theme this month, with both Whit and wit. NW legends Jefferama and Gordon Zola lead the proceedings.
