StoryTour: The Brooklyn Electric
May 21, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm
A fantastical love story featuring both Walt Whitman and the Jehovah’s Witnesses, this fictional walking tour follows in the steps of the ecstatic poet and the forces that shaped him. From boyhood revelry to the ravages of the Civil War, this imagined history honors the spirit of the man who urged us a century ago to search for him in the dust beneath our boot soles.
Part of StoryTour’s Fiction Section, “The Brooklyn Electric” was created by Lucas Loredo, a finalist for “The Best American Short Stories 2015” whose previous StoryTour, “The Secret Architecture of Loss,” ran for more than a year on and around the High Line. StoryTour is an in-person magazine that creates live storytelling experiences on location around New York City.
