Catch Billy Collins Live
Billy Collins, acclaimed poet and former Poet Laureate of the United States, performs readings of his and others' poetry on Facebook Live. He calls his program "The Poetry Broadcast." Most often, his readings come from contemporary poetry, but he scatters Shakespeare, Donne, and a few others here and there. This month he has also read poems from his new collection, Whale Day: And Other Poems. The book's release date is September 29th. You can sample a couple of the new poems at the preceding link.
