Event Details

Carol Ann Duffy will be coming to Crickhowell this November to celebrate the launch of the tenth and final Christmas book, Frost Fair, and the paperback publication of Sincerity, her last full collection as Poet Laureate.

Frost Fair: The tenth and final Christmas book, set in the frost fairs on London’s Thames in the sixteenth century.

‘Duffy’s spellbinding verse, spiced with witty, wintry illustrations, recaptures a magic most of us left behind in childhood’ – Maggie Fergusson, Intelligent Life

Sincerity: Her final collection as Poet Laureate, a frank, disarming and deeply moving exploration of loss and remembrance in their many forms. Presented in a beautiful, foiled package, this will be the poetry book of the year.

‘Wonderful . . . a poet alert to every sound and shape of language’ Sunday Telegraph
‘Duffy is magnificent, grounded, heartfelt, dedicated to the notion that poetry can give us the music of life itself’ Scotsman
‘Carol Ann Duffy is a poet of skill, talent and great heart’ – Erica Wagner
