A vivid living portrait of Walt Whitman emerges in R.J. Lindsey’s portrayal of one of America’s greatest poets.  Reservations are required by Oct. 5, by calling 847-825-1161, Ext. 129. Beginning with several verses of “Leaves of Grass,” the program also includes Whitman’s stories as a wound dresser tending to the casualties that filled the Washington D.C. hospitals during the Civil War. It concludes with a narration of Lincoln’s assassination and a reading from Whitman’s most popular poem, “Oh, Captain, My Captain.”
