Billy Collins and Aimee Mann
Award-winning poet Billy Collins and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Aimee Mann come together for a rare evening of poetry, acoustic music, and conversation about the creative process. The author of 10 books of poetry, Collins is a former United States Poet Laureate, a Guggenheim Fellow, and the inaugural recipient of the Poetry Foundation's Mark Twain Award for Humor in Poetry. Indie rock auteur Aimee Mann pens "sharp, literate, carefully crafted lyrics" (The Telegraph, London), which first launched her to stardom in the 1980s in the band 'Til Tuesday and have more recently appeared in her haunting songs for Paul Thomas Anderson's film Magnolia.
