In honor of Walt Whitman's 190th birthday, Poetry Atlanta and Composition Gallery host literary celebration THE PATH WORN IN THE GRASS. Taking their cue from the poet himself – "there is no stoppage and never can be stoppage" – the event will be a nonstop poetry-reading marathon of Whitman's famed "Song of Myself." Readers include Stephen Bluestone, Theresa Davis, Rupert Fike, Collin Kelley and Alice Lovelace. Free. 8 p.m. Composition Gallery, 1388 McLendon Ave. 678-982-9764. www.compositiongallery.com.
