An Evening with

Billy Collins and Kay Ryan

Thursday, April 29 at 8:00 PM

Ruth Finley Person Theater at Wells Fargo Center for the Arts

50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa (Hwy 101 to River Road).

Experience the work of two poets laureate in one outstanding evening of poetry.

Billy Collins (Poet Laureate 2000-01) is an American phenomenon. No poet since Robert Frost has managed to combine high critical acclaim with such broad popular appeal. His last three collections of poems have broken sales records for poetry and his readings are often standing room only.

Kay Ryan is a Marin County native and the 2008-09 Poet Laureate. She is known for her sly, compact poems that revel in wordplay and internal rhymes. Her funny and philosophical work has earned a carriage full of poetry prizes, including awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize.

Tickets $25/$35
