Stay Home, Stay Safe, Read Walt Whitman.
Looking for something to do at home during the Covid-19 Pandemic?
The Library of Congress wants volunteers to transcribe and review a collection of Walt Whitman’s poetry, personal letters, and other documents.
The poet of “Oh Captain! My Captain!” is one of America’s most famous poets. He penned such lines as, “These are the days that must happen to you,” “Do anything, but let it produce joy,” and “I am large, I contain multitudes.” We could all benefit from his wise words during these difficult days. And at the same time help preserve his legacy.
