Purchase Tickets

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.
