Page Meets Stage is where the Pulitzer Prize meets the poetry slam, and for 15 years they have been pairing poets to read back and forth at venues all over the country starting at the Bowery Poetry Club just down the street. The very first pairing back in 2005 featured Billy Collins and Taylor Mali. Therefore tonight’s reading, while not a poetry slam or a competition in any way, is still considered a “rematch.”
Billy Collins, the former United States Poet Laureate, is a beloved and widely read American poet & scholar. Taylor Mali is a four-time National Poetry Slam champion and the inventor of Metaphor Dice.
