[ARCHIVED] An Evening with Billy Collins

Extraordinarily popular as well as critically acclaimed, Collins served as U.S. Poet Laureate for 2001 – 2003. He views humor as “a door into the serious,” leading to poems that are funny, tender, quirky, moving, and profound observations of everyday life.

Often heard on NPR, Collins has been widely honored, including Poetry Foundation’s Mark Twain Prize for Humor in Poetry and the 2013 Donald Hall-Jane Kenyon Prize in American Poetry. His latest book is Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems 2003 – 2013.
