Page & Stage

@ Poetry Foundation

61 W Superior St, Chicago, IL 60654

Opening Thursday, February 14th, from 7PM - 9PM

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 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.
