Poetry & the Creative Mind
Each year during National Poetry Month in April, the Academy of American Poets presents a gala celebration of poetry's important place in our culture, and its impact on the lives of readers and artists working in other disciplines. The event—Poetry & the Creative Mind— takes place at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and features leading and legendary actors, dancers, artists, musicians, and public figures on one stage sharing their favorite poems. The April 2017 event featured Meryl Streep, Uzo Aduba, Elizabeth Alexander, Wayne Brady, Maurice Hines, Madhur Jaffrey, Sebastian Junger, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Amanda Palmer, Meg Ryan, National Student Poet Joey Reisberg, and more.
