Merced Arts & Culture Salon

In this one-man performance, Tim Holt takes on the role of Walt Whitman, presenting his life and work in poetry and prose. Holt, as Whitman, celebrates the energy, the sprawling expanse, and diversity of America in the mid-19th century. Whitman's saga includes his early years growing up on Long Island, his newspaper career, and his encounters with Abraham Lincoln and Ralph Waldo Emerson--the life experiences that went into the making of Leaves of Grass.
