Celebrating Poetry and Community with the Laureate and Friends with Carol Ann Duffy, Gillian Clarke, Imtiaz Dharker, Jackie Kay, John Sampson plus a special guest poet.

Picador and Simply Books present.

Carol Ann Duffy has been a bold, original voice and one of Britain's best-loved poets since the publication of Standing Female Nude in 1985; she has subsequently won every major poetry prize in the UK, published collections that have collectively sold more than one million copies worldwide and was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009.

Coinciding with and supporting the 10th anniversary of Independent Bookshop Week, SHORE TO SHORE sees the Poet Laureate and her chosen fellow artists undertaking a major national tour to perform their work and to celebrate communities with independent bookshops at their heart.

Picador and Simply Books are delighted to present Carol Ann Duffy performing alongside three of the fellow poets whom she most admires: Gillian Clarke, Imtiaz Dharker and Jackie Kay. The evening will be accompanied by music from instrumentalist and composer John Sampson plus a special guest poet local to the venue.

Shore to Shore: Celebrating Poetry and Community with the Laureate and Friends will bring audiences an unforgettable evening featuring some of the finest voices in contemporary British poetry.

Each ticket includes a copy of the Shore to Shore Commemorative Tour Programme, which will be distributed at the event.
