Kelly Writer’s House features Penn student readings and invited guests. For example, 9/17 (7 pm) – “STORM: FROM WHITMAN’S ELECTION DAY TO OURS (PART ONE)” In partnership with #VoteThatJawn and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society (PCMS), they will host a virtual reading of poetry by Philadelphia Youth Poets Laureate — by youth and for youth. Explore civic engagement and the youth vote through poetic responses to Walt Whitman’s poem, “Election Day: November 1884.” PCMS will continue the exploration of Whitman’s poem with the October 30th World Premiere/PCMS Commission of “the still, small voice,” by composer Kenji Bunch. Harlem Quartet and Catalyst Quartet will perform.
