An Evening with Former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins
Author of Musical Tables
In conversation with Aliki Barnstone – Poet Laureate of Missouri, 2016-2019
Two-time United States Poet Laureate is widely loved for his amiable voice, wit, and profound wisdom. Now “America’s favorite poet” has found a new form for his unique poetic style: the small poem. Collins writes about his trademark themes of nature, animals, poetry, mortality, absurdity, and love—all in a handful of lines. The poems of Musical Tables show one of our greatest poets channeling his unique voice into a new phase of his exceptional career.
A socially-distanced book signing line will follow the presentation.
