Now that tomorrow's book celebration is about to be history, it's time for a few announcements. But first a bit of explanation. The Warrior's Stance is the title of Laura Jeanne Morefield's poetry chapbook. It contains pre- and post-diagnosis works. As you know, Laura (October 8,1960-July 17, 2011) assigned this task to me, her mommy, prior to her death, knowing that I would fulfill her request. The book's publication was made possible through the generosity of Laura's husband, Dan Morefield, and the entire sales price goes directly to the Colon Cancer Alliance in Washington, DC. I'd also like to thank book designer Patty Keverhan and web site designer Kelley Worrall.
