Billy Collins

It’s a wonder the Charleston Library Society is still standing since rock star poet Billy Collins parked his flame-decal-covered tour bus in front last month. Collins powered through a ninety-minute set to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Poetry Society of South Carolina, joining the list of PSSC speakers that includes Edna St. Vincent Millay, Gertrude Stein and Robert Frost. We still have signed copies of The Trouble with Poetry, Picnic, Lightning,Questions About AngelsNine Horses and a piece of his shirt. We were a bit starstruck.
