Saturday, April 29th at 6:30pm at the Bainbridge High School Theater.
Join us for an evening with former two-time Poet Laureate of the United States Billy Collins as he takes the stage for his first Pacific Northwest event in over five years. At 6:30 p.m., Mr. Collins will read some of his favorite poetry and selections from his books.
After the reading, guests who purchase a “Golden Circle” ticket will move from Bainbridge High School down to the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art for a special reception with wine and dessert from 8:15 to 10 m. These guests will also have reserved seating in the first several rows of the theater during the reading. This fundraising event will help to close out the capital campaign to build the new Buxton Center for Bainbridge Performing Arts, currently under construction, and set to open this fall. All proceeds from the event will go toward the campaign as Mr. Collins would like to honor his dear friend Frank Buxton.
Tickets: $30 General Admission to Reading at BHS at 6:30 p.m.; $100 for admission to the Reading and the Golden Circle Reception at BIMA from 8:15 to 10 p.m.
