America, Aeronwy And Me By Peter Thabit Jones

My friend, the poet Tino Villanueva-- sent me this handsome book about Dylan Thomas' daughter, Aeronwy Thomas, and Welsh poet Peter Thabiat Jones' visit to the United States in 2008. The tour was organized by Stanley Barkin-- their American publisher, in conjunction with American poet and critic Vince Clemente. Villanueva was instrumental in organizing their stop in Cambridge--working with Harvard University and the Grolier Poetry Book Shop in hosting the event. Aeronwy died in 2009, so thanks to Villanueva I was able to interview her for The Somerville Times at the place of her choice-- a Harvard Square Dunkin' Donuts. The interview is cited in the book.
