Event description
PAGE MEETS STAGE with José Olivarez & Jon Sands

About this Event

José Olivarez is the son of Mexican immigrants. His debut book of poems, Citizen Illegal, was a finalist for the PEN/ Jean Stein Award and a winner of the 2018 Chicago Review of Books Poetry Prize.

Jon Sands is a winner of the 2018 National Poetry Series, selected for his second book, It’s Not Magic. He teaches at Brooklyn College, Urban Word NYC, and facilitates a weekly writing workshop for adults at Baily House, an HIV/AIDS service center in East Harlem.

The series Page Meets Stage, often called “where the Pulitzer Prize meets the poetry slam,” is like no other poetry reading series anywhere. For over 15 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 www.PageMeetsStage.com for the complete schedule. Tickets are $12 if purchased online in advance and $15 (if there are any left) at the door. Call 646-543-5232 for more information.
