Billy Collins.

There are lots of perks when you work for a museum! This weekend was one of them. We hosted the former U.S. and New York State Poet Laureate, Billy Collins, and he did three events for us, two of them fundraisers. I got him to sign the little haiku he wrote and I letterpressed. He is a wonderful, down-to-earth man and very approachable. And his poetry is so loved by so many people including me now. I got to have dinner with him and a group of other museum people last night...I'm still smiling.
