Books That Shaped America: "Leaves of Grass" by Walt Whitman
Bender Library, American University, Tuesday, April 21 at 7pm
Marianne Noble, Associate Professor of Literature at American University, leads a discussion of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.

The Books That Shaped America events are conversations for the American University and metro-D.C. communities about books that have helped shape American society. Each discussion starts with a focal text, but the conversations stretch far beyond the pages of the books themselves. Each discussion is led by a faculty or staff member from AU.

Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to have read the featured text. The event website provides references and links for additional materials attendees may find interesting. Admission and parking are free for this series, and no RSVP is required to attend. (LenneaRB)
