Tracy K. Smith is the knockout poet who wrote the Pulitzer Prize–winning collection of poetry Life on Mars in 2011. Life on Mars is apocalyptic and erudite, a body of poetry wearing a nonfiction jacket. (“These were the Reagan years, / When we lived with our finger on The Button and struggled / To view our enemies as children.”) Joshua Roman is the knockout cellist who was commissioned to turn the book into a song cycle; he called it we do it to one another. Soprano Jessica Rivera (conducted by Roman himself) will perform, then Smith and Roman will sit and talk to each other about the creative process, music, and poetry. JEN GRAVES
