On Tuesday, November 12th at 7:30 p.m., the Joynes Reading Room (CRD 007) will host a one-man show on the life of Walt Whitman.

Pure Grass" is a dramatic interpretation created by Dr. Bruce Noll, an actor, poet and retired University of New Mexico professor. The program is composed entirely of excerpts from poet Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass and weaves together many of the writer's themes. Since its first performance in 1970, "Pure Grass" has undergone many changes but Noll always strives to represent the spirit of Walt Whitman in his oral interpretation of this timeless work of literature.

 

The Joynes Reading Room is located on the east side of the Carothers Residence Hall at 2501 Whitis Avenue on the University of Texas at Austin Campus.  Paid parking is available at the garage at 25th Street and San Antonio.

 

Call 512 471-5787 for more information.

This event is free and open to the public.
