Mandates, boosters and global supply. Georgetown University's Lawrence Gostin talks about what is legal -- and what might be most effective -- when it comes to getting Americans vaccinated.
When the pandemic began, poet Billy Collins started livestreaming himself on Facebook, reading his own poems, and some favorites written by others. It was less to provide comfort, more to pass the time. But it struck a chord with fans, who now tune in daily.
This isn’t too surprising. For decades, Collins, former U.S. poet laureate, has held the unique title of “best-selling poet.” His work often examines the everyday, the domestic, and the personal. Now 79, Collins has just published his 14th poetry collection, “Whale Day.”
In it, he turns his attention to mortality – but the poems aren’t morose. They are filled with Collins’ signature humor and an overwhelming sense of gratitude.
- Billy Collins Author of 14 collections of poetry, including "Whale Day"; U.S. Poet Laureate from 2001 to 2003 and New York State Poet Laureate from 2004 to 2006
