For the lecture, Justin Martin will discuss his latest work, Rebel Souls: Walt Whitman and America's First Bohemians (Da Capo Press). Rebel Souls is the first book ever written about a colorful group of artists, regulars at Pfaff's saloon in Manhattan, rightly considered America's original Bohemians. Besides a young Whitman, the circle included trailblazing stand-up comic Artemus Ward, psychedelic drug pioneer Fitz-Hugh Ludlow, and the brilliant brazen Adah Menken, who became world famous for her "Naked Lady" routine. This first Bohemian cultureimported from Paris to a dingy Broadway saloonseeded and nurtured an American tradition of rebel art that endures today.

Martin's previous books include Genius of Place: The Life of Frederick Law Olmsted (Da Capo, 2011), Nader: Crusader, Spoiler, Icon (Perseus, 2002), and Greenspan: the Man Behind Money (Perseus, 2000). Martin's articles have appeared in a variety of publications including the New York Times, Boston Globe, and San Francisco Chronicle. A 1987 graduate of Rice University in Houston, Texas, Martin lives with his wife and twin sons in Forest Hills Gardens, New York.
