Clever, provocative and fun, the work of UK Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy is the perfect counter to anyone who would deny the allure of poetry. One of the most influential poets of the day, Duffy writes for children and adults alike, champions language and teaches English at Manchester University besides. She speaks with John Campbell about her life in letters and reads from her work in what promises to be a life-affirming session.
