Speaker Bio

Current as of October 23, 2018

Billy Collins is hailed as the most popular poet in America. His work is often noted for its path from humor to thought-provoking artistic depth—that turn that hooks the reader by surprise time and time again. He served as U.S. Poet Laureate from 2001 to 2003, has received the National Endowment for the Arts, and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2016. His work continues to engage sell-out audiences, and each new collection of poetry inevitably lands on The New York Times best-seller list—a remarkable feat for a contemporary poet.

Latest publications include Ballistics, Horoscopes for the Dead, Aimless Love, and The Rain in Portugal.
