Two former U.S. Poets Laureate, Billy Collins and Kay Ryan, bring a lyrical feast to UCLA Live as they fill Royce Hall with humor and insight into the human condition through award-winning poetry.
Collins, winner of the 2004 inaugural Mark Twain Prize for Humor in Poetry, served as America’s Poet Laureate from 2001-2003. Beloved for his ironic style, Collins is one of the top-selling modern poets and author of nine collections including Questions About Angels, The Art of Drowning and The Trouble With Poetry and Other Poems.
California native and UCLA alumna Kay Ryan is revered for her complex and rueful style. Her work includes The Jam Jar Lifeboat & Other Novelties Exposed, a delightful collection inspired by stories from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, as well as Flamingo Watching, which was a finalist for both the Lamont Poetry Selection and the Lenore Marshall Prize. In 2004, Ryan was awarded The Ruth Lilly Prize—the Poetry Foundation’s highest honor.
