Greenlight, Erv’s, and PLG Arts are thrilled to host a marathon celebration of Brooklyn poet Walt Whitman’s masterwork, “Leaves of Grass.” Dozens of writers and friends will read aloud the complete work at PLG’s beloved bar, coffee shop, and gathering spot, starting in the afternoon and continuing until closing (if necessary). Confirmed readers include Alvaro Enrigue, Valeria Luiselli, Darcey Steinke, Rosalie Knecht, Martha Plimpton, Adam Sternbergh, Christiane Seidel, Ashley C. Ford, and many other local authors, business owners, literary world celebrities, and neighborhood characters — a diversity of readers befitting Whitman’s radically inclusive vision. Greenlight will offer copies of Leaves of Grass and related works for sale, with a portion of proceeds benefitting a local Whitman-friendly nonprofit, and Erv’s offers its own signature beverages for sale, including the “Leaf of Grass.”

Erv’s is located at 2122 Beekman Place, Brooklyn
