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

Professor LePore's lecture was just excellent. Laced with humor, spiced with topical references, it was educational and entertaining -- a terrific combination. If it's ever repeated, it's well worth attending. (She did miss one Biblical reference; but who's counting?). Exhibit on King James Bible at Folger Library is also wonderful, and well worth seeing.
