Carol Ann is the current poet Laureate of the UK. A revered artist whose work focuses on the rich fantasy life and feats of imagination that underly the everyday and the banal. A highly resourceful poet, her work draws inspiration from everything, from lovers, to onions.
She will be joining us to read through a series of selected pieces in this rarely intimate setting. The readings will be interspersed with personal reflections by Carol. Expect her to enlighten us on the process of composition, the reception of her pieces and (if we’re lucky) perhaps some reflections on one of her more famous fans: the queen.
