So very saddened to hear that friend and American poet Laura Boss has passed away. Laura, with fellow American poet Maria Mazziotti Gillan, hosted Aeronwy Thomas and me in New Jersey during our 2008 Dylan Thomas Tribute Tour of America, organised by Stanley H. Barkan, our mutual publisher. She came to Wales twice, to participate in two The Seventh Quarry Press/Cross-Cultural Communications (USA) festivals organised by me, in conjunction with Stan, at the Dylan Thomas Theatre. I was also involved in events with her at The Poetry Centre, Paterson, New Jersey. Laura, a wonderful poet, was the Founder and Editor of LIPS magazine.
