To many, Walt Whitman is the quintessential American poet.  His messages of  democracy, individuality, inclusiveness and acceptance are arguably as relevant today as they were in the 1800s.  Minneapolis-based playwright, actor, dancer and Whitman aficionado Patrick Scully has created a theatrical production that brings the life and words of Whitman to the stage.  He's bringing his one man show to the Eagles Club in Bemidji October 4 in association with the Beltrami County Historical Society's fall fundraiser.  He spoke with us on the morning show about Whitman, the production and why he thinks Whitman fits the bill as one of America's greatest poets. 

The Beltrami County Historical Fundraiser starts at 6:30pm, October 4th at the Eagles Club in Bemidji.  The play begins at 7:00pm.
