This past Friday night, fans gathered in the basement of a Denver, Colorado indie bookstore called Tattered Cover Book Store, to catch a glimpse of Misha Collins and have him sign a copy of his new poetry book, Some Things I Still Can’t Tell You.
Collins was in town for the Supernatural convention and stopped by the store to promote his book and meet fans.
After Collins realized he didn’t have a copy on hand, he borrowed one from a fan and read a few poems suggested by the audience; “A Meal of Beets”, “Reread”, and “Eugenia”. At one point Misha brought up how poets have a “poet dialect” and
encouraged everyone to snap their fingers if he fell into it. This then led to him trying to recite a poem in a Brooklyn accent in hopes to avoid the usual lilt poetry reading seems to bring. Collins also answered a few questions before continuing
He also answered a few questions before continuing on to the signing portion of the evening; delighting fans with short chats and laughs.
The Tattered Cover hosts more than 500 events every year and has been a Denver institution for 50 years.
