Former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poetry that surprises and delights: "Luring his readers into the poem with humor, Mr. Collins leads them unwittingly into deeper, more serious places, a kind of journey from the familiar to quirky to unexpected territory, sometimes tender, often profoundā€ (The New York Times). Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, Mary Oliver is that rarest of creatures, a best-selling poet, beloved for her evocative and precise imagery. Mary Oliver's next new poetry collection, A Thousand Mornings, is due out in fall 2012. "The gift of Oliver's poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettableā€ (The Boston Globe).
