If you are looking for amusement this evening, join me at the American Museum of Natural History for a reading from Bright Wings, an anthology of poems about birds edited by Billy Collins and illustrated by David Allen Sibley. I'll be reading a poem of mine from the anthology, as well as a few others, and Billy Collins will be speaking and reading with his usual flair. Here's a link to more info in The New Yorker. And you can buy tickets thought the museum's websiter here.

Introduce yourself to The New Criterion for the lowest price ever—and a receive an extra issue as thanks.
