13th October, 5.30pm–6.30pm
Join Carol Ann Duffy, as she reads from her final full poetry collection as Poet Laureate. Sincerity is a frank, disarming and deeply moving exploration of loss and remembrance in their many forms. Carol Ann has invited fellow poets Mark Pajak and Keith Hutson to join her on stage to share their work.
Dame Carol Ann Duffy was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009. She has written for both children and adults, and her poetry has received many awards, including the Signal Prize for Children’s Verse, the Whitbread, Forward and TS Eliot Prizes. In 2011 The Bees won the Costa Poetry Award, and in 2012 she won the PEN Pinter Prize.
