$45 and $30

 [Aimee Mann is] one of the finest songwriters of her generation.” The New York Times

“Billy Collins writes lovely poems... Gently and consistently startling, more serious than they seem.” – John Updike

Oscar-nominated songwriter and indie music star Aimee Mann always provides her fans with well-crafted music and lyrics that reflect her wry worldview. Former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins sees his poetry as "a form of travel writing" and considers humor "a door into the serious"—a door that thousands of readers have opened with amazement and delight. The two met at a 2011 White House event honoring the art of American poetry and now come together for an evening celebrating the perspective and reflection that comes from a writer's eye.
