OFFSITE EVENT: St. Joseph's College Billy Collins presents Aimless Love
Tickets $15 (includes a copy of Aimless Love)
A Brooklyn Voices event
Billy Collins, two-term Poet Laureate of the United States and the man the Wall Street Journal calls “America’s favorite poet”, offers his first compilation of new and selected poems in twelve years with Aimless Love. Combining more than fifty new poems with selections from four previous books, the book is a celebration of Collins’s unmistakable voice, and reminds us how he has managed to enrich the tapestry of contemporary poetry and greatly expand its audience. By turns playful, ironic, and serious, Collins’s poetry captures the nuances of everyday life while leading the reader into zones of inspired wonder, and appeals to readers and live audiences far and wide. Collins sells out reading venues all across the country, and Greenlight and St. Joseph’s are proud to host him this evening for a reading and signing for the paperback edition of Aimless Love as part of the Brooklyn Voices series.
St. Joseph’s College is located at 245 Clinton Avenue (between Dekalb and Willoughby), Brooklyn, New York. Closest subways are G to Clinton/Washington, C to Lafayette, or any train to Atlantic/Pacific station. More information at www.sjcny.edu/directions
