Poet Billy Collins to Speak at Princeton Theological Seminary Nov. 2

Poet Billy CollinsFormer United States Poet Laureate Billy Collins will read from his work, discuss the nature of poetry, the task of writing, and connections between poetry and faith at Princeton Theological Seminary on Wednesday, Nov. 2.

His work has appeared in a variety of periodicals, including The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The American Scholar.

From 2004 to 2006 he served as the New York State Poet Laureate, and is currently a distinguished professor of English at Lehman College of The City University of New York.

M. Craig Barnes is the author of The Pastor as Minor Poet: Texts and Subtexts In the Ministerial Life (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2008), which explores poetry as a metaphor for pastoral ministry.
