Whitman at 200



 The University of Pennsylvania Libraries, in conjunction with partner organizations across the Philadelphia/Camden region as well as Penn groups and programs, will organize a series of cultural events and artistic commissions in 2019, to highlight the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman's birth, which will take place on Friday, May 31, 2019. While events will take place all year, there will be a focus on the two-week period, between May 24 and June 9, 2019, around Whitman's birthday.
