More sad news …

Just got an email from Diane Sahms-Guarieri and G.E. Reutter:
Marty Esworthy of the Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel has informed us that Philadelphia native and Hummelstown Poet Jack Veasey passed on suddenly yesterday. Jack was a fine man and an excellent poet. In recent years there has been a resurgence in publication of books and most recently with: Jack Veasey. The Dance That Begins And Begins: Selected Poems 1973-2013 released by Poet's Press. AUPC of Harrisburg will be planning a memorial service sometime in the future. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.
Here is a profile.
