Unlaunch'd Voices: An Evening with Walt Whitman @ Larchmont Public Library |  |  |

Join the Friends of the Library for this one-man show starring Stephen Collins. Unlaunch’d Voices, an Evening With Walt Whitman opens with the elderly Whitman on the evening of his seventieth birthday. The audience is a visitor in his room as he prepares for his birthday celebration. Whitman begins to reminisce and to question his success as a man and a poet. He tells us his work has proved to be “less than a failure….” He remembers a mystical experience he had in his thirty-seventh year that inspired him to write poetry.
