An American icon meets her former student who is bound for greatness.
The series, often called “where the Pulitzer Prize meets the poetry slam,” is like no other poetry reading series anywhere. Each month, for over 10 years, two different poets, one who writes primarily for the page and another who is more performance oriented, take the stage together and read back and forth, poem for poem. It is not a slam or competition in any way. Check out YouTube to see some of the more memorable moments in the series, or go to PageMeetsStage.com for the complete schedule. Tickets are $12 (but discounted if purchased online and early). Call 646-543-5232 for more information.
Doors open 5:45 p.m. Show starts 6:00 and ends 7:30 p.m.
