Billy Collins and Mary Chapin Carpenter
An Evening of Spoken Word and Song
?What Collins does best is turn an apparently simple phrase into a numinous moment.?
? The New Yorker
?Slowly but surely, Mary Chapin Carpenter has built a repertoire that ranks with the best of her generation ... The new songs [are] mini-masterpieces.?
? The Boston Globe
No poet since Robert Frost has managed to combine high critical acclaim with such broad popular appeal as former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins. His last three collections of poems have broken sales records and his readings are often standing room only. In a luminous evening of music, readings and insights, Collins joins forces with literate country singer/songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter, whose most recent album, the evocative Between Here and Gone was described by Entertainment Weekly as a ?dashboard light for life?s dark roads.?
