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
