On Thursday evening I went to see US and UK Poet Laureates Billy Collins and Carol Ann Duffy read at Edge Hill. It was a fantastic evening.
Carol Ann Duffy read some poems from her collection The World's Wife, a collection I love, along with more recent poems including one written in response to England's performance in the World Cup. She can be heard below reading 'Mrs Aesop'.
Billy Collins read from several collections and can be heard below reading a poem 'The Dead' which he read on Thursday.
