Carol Ann Duffy is the most humane and accessible poet of our time
— Rose Tremain, Guardian

Join former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy as she reads extracts from her much-loved Christmas poems, including her tenth and final book in the series, Frost Fair, set on the Thames in the sixteenth century.

These beautifully illustrated gift books have become a feature of the Festive season over the years and include titles such as Another Night Before Christmas, Mrs Scrooge, A Christmas Truce and Wenceslas.

Duffy will also read poems from her latest volume of poetry, Sincerity, a deeply moving exploration of loss and remembrance, and from Collected Poems.
