Walt Whitman and his Bolton Friends
Adlington Library 14:30-16:00
A talk by local enthusiast, Flo Wood, explores how a small group (later known as the 'Whitmanites') from Bolton became friends with the American poet. Later in his life the leader of the group JJ Wallace lived in Babylon Lane where there is a Walt Whitman plaque, commemorating his home there.
