‘The Patron Saint of Poetry’ – Carol Ann Duffy
Roger McGough comes to the festival with his wonderful new book of poems, As Far As I Know. Hilarious and surreal, he is a poet of many voices. Menance and melancholy there may be, but there’s plenty of Roger’s characteristic wit and wordplay too. Newly elected President of the Poetry Society, Roger has a CBE for services to literature and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool for good behaviour. He also presents the long-running Poetry Please programme on BBC Radio Four.
