September 2007: Barbara Simon's Book of Poems Debuts

In February 2007, a group of Barbara Simon's literary friends and colleagues began work on a collection of Barbara's poetry. Titled The Woman From Away, the volume will debut on September 29 at the 2007 Baltimore Book Festival (BBF). The publication event will take place in the Creative Cafe, a BBF stage, which Barbara--as a founding BBF partner--hosted for Maryland State Poetry & Literary Society. Barbara's family has suggested that in Barbara's memory donations may be made to the Maryland State Poetry & Literary Society (See the story "Passing of a Literary Light" below). MSP&LS is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Donors will be recognized in the published book The Woman From Away and invited to participate in the publication party for the book.

I was very pleased to hear about the book, though I'm sad I will be in Chicago during the launch. I can't wait to see the book.
