The Tom McGrath Visiting Writers Series invites the campus community to a special event with Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate (2001-2003), on Thursday, September 23 from 12:00 noon-2 p.m. in the CMU 227. This is an informal “Meet-and-Greet,” and at some point Collins will entertain some questions from the audience. Light refreshments will be served. No RSVP necessary. Please feel free to drop in for a short time or to stay for the entire event.

Also, at 3 p.m. that day, Collins will be interviewed live on “Hear It Now,” on Prairie Public Radio, KDSU FM 91.9, so tune in!

We hope to see you on September 23rd! Please join us in welcoming U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins to MSUM—if not at the 12-2 p.m. event, then perhaps at Collins’s 8 p.m. reading at the Gaede Stage.
