Bill Murray Reads Poetry to Construction Crew
Trent Gilliss, senior editor

Poets House MapPoets House, a “national poetry library and literary center that invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry,” recently relocated from a prohibitively expensive location in New York’s Soho district to a newly constructed building in Battery Park.

To my utter delight, the video above includes actor Bill Murray reading poetry to construction workers during break time — with charming applause for his reading of Emily Dickinson.

cool, just plain cool.

Always a good show with Bill Murray.

Bill Murray comes across as a warm, caring, very funny man.
