Billy Collins: An Evening with the [former] U.S. Poet Laureate

On Sept 24 AM, I noticed the screen blacked out, and searched both video.google.com and .uctv.tv. The Billy Collins video featured in this post has been removed from the web--hopefully temporarily.

Billy Collins

United States Poet Laureate, 2001-2003


50 min 10 sec, September 15, 2003



"U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins delights a UCSB audience with his poetry which he sees as a 'form of travel writing' with humor as 'a door into the serious.' It is a door that many thousands of readers have opened with amazement and delight."

Hi Paula,

He's very good, and as you might imagine, yet better in person. Sometime, then, when you can make it to the states, maybe we can find where Collins is speaking.

It's great to see you stopping in, and leaving a note behind.

Bud
