Former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poetry that surprises and delights: "Luring his readers into the poem with humor, Mr. Collins leads them unwittingly into deeper, more serious places, a kind of journey from the familiar to quirky to unexpected territory, sometimes tender, often profound” (The New York Times). Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, Mary Oliver is that rarest of creatures, a best-selling poet, beloved for her evocative and precise imagery. Mary Oliver's next new poetry collection, A Thousand Mornings, is due out in fall 2012. "The gift of Oliver's poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettable” (The Boston Globe).

This concert will run approximately 90 minutes.
