George appears onstage with Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion.

“Tracing the arc of the baby boomer generation from cradle to grave, Bilgere’s poems paint a picture of American life that is equal parts sadness, matter-of-factness, and hilarity.”

—Dorianne Laux


“Bilgere is a damn good poet.” 

—Edward Field


George has given readings and workshops at the Library of Congress, the Town Hall Theater in New York as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion, the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, the 92nd Street Y in New York, the Philip Larkin Library in Hull, England, and at universities, libraries, and arts centers around the country.
