Poetry Reading by Lawrence Kramer

When: Wed., Aug. 5, 7-8:30 p.m. 2015

Released to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and National Poetry Month, Walt Whitman’s “Drum-Taps”—one of the most enduring Civil War literary work based on first-hand experience—is both a brilliant collection of poetry and a haunting testament to the war’s emotional complexity and lingering after effects. In its unexpurgated original form once more, this edition of “Drum Taps” is complete with annotations and an introduction by Lawrence Kramer, a musicologist and composer and a professor at Fordham University who lives in Rhinebeck.
