History, myth and a contemporary wit are frequent bedfellows in Scottish poet Carol Ann Duffy's work. A celebrated and award-winning poet, writer and playwright, Duffy has won the T.S. Eliot Prize and a Lannan Literary Award for Poetry, among others, and was appointed Britain's Poet Laureate in 2009, the first woman to hold the position. Her collections of poetry include The Bees, Rapture and Jubilee Lines. For this appearance, she'll read selections from her own work and from her favorite works by others. Learn More

"Love" is NOT an appropriate adjective/verb to use for a WAR author event. It was EXCELLENT; the speakers as well as the moderator were very good; the subject VERY serious, but NOT fun - nothing to "love" but VERY appropriate, timely, and well done.
