None other than the great former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins kicked off Beacon College’s inaugural Beacon Salon Speaker Series in grand fashion with his Sept. 20 event in The Villages, Florida.

Collins delighted the audience of better than 100 fans, poetry-lovers, and Beacon students with his perspective of life that is at once whimsical and tragic, eccentric and universal, and ultimately thought-provoking.

More engaging, engrossing, and edifying speakers will follow in the Beacon Salon Speaker Series in the months ahead, beginning with Bob Kealing: Unearthing Hidden Central Florida Popular History Oct. 25.
