Celebrating National Poetry Month with Garrison Keillor and Billy Collins [Books]

Print

April is National Poetry Month, and Louisville will be celebrating it in a big way. On Thursday, April 21, at The Kentucky Center, U of L and the Kentucky Author Forum will be hosting an interview with Billy Collins, former Poet Laureate of the United States and author of Horoscopes for the Dead. Collins will be interviewed by none other than Garrison Keillor, host and writer of A Prairie Home Companion and The Writer’s Almanac.

The evening begins at 5 p.m. with a Carmichael’s book sale and a Brown-Forman wine and cheese reception.

The interview between Collins and Keillor will begin at 6 p.m., with a question-and-answer session to follow at 7. At 8:15 p.m., there will be a dinner in honor of the two authors.

Tickets are $17 for events occurring before 8 p.m. and $100 for all events, plus dinner. Tickets can be purchased from The Kentucky Center. This event is so popular that the Kentucky Author Forum has already arranged for additional general seating in the Kentucky Show! Theater. The Interview will be shown there on a wide screen, with live audio feed from the Bomhard Theatre, courtesy of KET.
