A funeral for the beloved Boston Poet Laureate, Sam Cornish, takes place Sunday November 11 at 1 pm in the Bourne National Veteran’s Cemetery. The recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, Sam became the inaugural poet laureate of the city of Boston, serving from 2008 – 2014.

Some of you may remember that Sam taught several excellent courses in poetry for the Cape Cod Writers Center Conferences in 2011 and 2012 so we hope you can attend.

His friends have also begun a Go Fund Me, Celebrate Sam, to handle expenses. If you’d like to contribute, please click on http://gofundme.com/h8m987-unsure
