More Or Less I Am is a music- theater piece drawn from Walt Whitman's 1855 "Song of Myself" - conceived and directed by Karin Coonrod with original music by Colin Jacobsen, Kyle Sanna and Eric Jacobsen.

More Or Less I Am vitalizes Whitman's call to us, then and now, as a declaration of interdependence, an awaking of the American consciousness. Here in full voice is our audacious poet laureate whose message so passionately articulates our enormous and creative diversity and seems to exhort us to get back to our soul and cut a deep mark together

This keynote and other events during the weekend are co-presented with Poetry Society of America.

Whitman at 200 is made possible with generous support from the Poetry Foundation.
