Smith, a nationally celebrated and award-winning poet, will be paired with two local poets. Thompson is the current Grand Rapids Poet Laureate, while Price previously held that role.

"Their bold, important work resonates both on the page and on the stage, and this evening promises to be an energetic, dynamic, challenging, moving, and unforgettable event," organizers said of the evening that continues a two-decades-long GVSU tradition of inviting acclaimed poets to share their work with the community.
