Taylor Mali, slam poet extraordinaire!

Thursday, November 17th at 7 pm

Unitarian Universalist Society of Schenectady on Wendell Ave


Mr. Mali is the author of "What Teachers Make."  Billy Collins says, "Taylor Mali is tagged as a performance poet, but his performances, rather than being frontal assaults, are leavened by charm and wit."  Bob Holman writes, "Mali's poems are CLEAR.  They are almost always HYSTERICALLY FUNNY, often SENTIMENTAL, APPEALING, ACCESSIBLE. And SMART."  Stephen Holden, of The New York Times says, "Mr. Mali is a ranting comic showman and literary provocateur."  This is an evening you don't want to miss.  Tickets are $15 per adult, $10 per student.


Proceeds go to Safe Passage, a non-profit organization working in Guatemala City to bring hope, education, and opportunity to the children and families living in extreme poverty around the city's garbage dump.
