Wimbledon Bookfest Event - Carol Ann Duffy

Last evening I went along to another event at Wimbledon Bookfest. This time I was in the Big Tent on Wimbledon Common to see Carol Ann Duffy. She had brought along her Court Musician, John Sampson who played a range of wind instruments through the ages. He also accompanied Carol Ann Duffy on a couple of poems.

Carol Ann Duffy read from The World's Wife, Rapture and The Bees as well as a poignant poem about her mother. She spoke about how one of her poems was banned from the school curriculum and then went on to write a poem about that with her usual wit! It was a lovely evening. My photos I'm afraid are pretty dismal unlike the poetry which was captivating and amusing.
