Bill Murray Reads Poetry at a Construction Site: Emily Dickinson, Billy Collins & More

Another great New York City moment. In the spring of 2009, construction workers building the new home for Poets House were treated to a short poetry reading by the actor Bill Murray. We initially encounter Murray (at the 59 second mark) reading lines from Billy Collins’ Another Reason I Don’t Keep a Gun in the House. Next up? Lorine Niedecker’s very pithy poem, Poets Work, and then, of course, a little Emily Dickinson.
