An Evening with Billy Collins
Named “the most popular poet in America” by The New York Times and a former United States Poet Laureate, Billy Collins is an American phenomenon. No poet since Robert Frost has managed to combine high critical acclaim with such broad popular appeal. Collins’ readings are usually standing room only, his collections have broken sales records for poetry, and his readings delight audiences of all backgrounds and age groups with their humor and insight.
The evening begins with cocktails and generous hors d’oeuvres in the mural building. Then Billy Collins takes the stage to delight Gala attendees with his conversational, witty poems. The evening concludes with a dessert reception. Three ticket levels are available with varying benefits. Learn more and purchase tickets: americanmuralproject.org/gala.
RSVP by September 3. Event contingency plans in place to comply with state mandates.
