Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy will give a reading to help raise funds for Wakefield Lit Fest.
The internationally-renowned poet will perform at The Orangery, Wakefield, on Saturday April 19, where she will also sign copies of her collections.
Wakefield Lit Fest will return for the third time in September.
Ms Duffy appeared at last year’s event and the money raised at the reading will be used for the festival’s work developing the writing of young people.
