Cave Canem Legacy Conversation: Page & Stage

This event is in the past - Thu 14 Feb 2019

Explore the love-hate relationship between spoken-word and written poetry, which remains fraught in the literary world and often incites questions of race, class, and respectability.

This reading by and dialogue at The Poetry Foundation between page and stage poets features Pulitzer Prize-winner Tyehimba Jess and Kingsley Tufts Poetry Prize Award-winner Patricia Smith, aiming to both deconstruct and illuminate the multitudes within poetry and form. Poet Nate Marshall moderates.

Free admission. Co-sponsored by Cave Canem
