Carol Ann Duffy reading Edinburgh

Carol Ann Duffy

About the event

Carol Ann Duffy at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Carol Ann Duffy first discovered poetry through reading other people's verse at school. 'A love poem in a quiet English lesson seemed as startling and exotic as a wild bird flying in through the classroom window,' she wrote recently. Now, the Poet Laureate returns the compliment, presenting poems from her own forthcoming collection The Bees. Her poetry is given added flight by musician John Sampson with his recorders, crumhorns and other instruments. Tickets £10.00, £8.00. Visit:
