Dylan Thomas Centre under threat

Friday, April 08, 2011
Update: Sign petition here.

Poet Nigel Jenkins writes...
Plans are currently being laid, locally and nationally, for celebrations of the one hundredth anniversary, in 2014, of the birth of Dylan Thomas, Swansea's most famous son. The city is surely going to look a little bizarre, to put it mildly, in the eyes of the wider world if it is seen to have abandoned the Dylan Thomas Centre on the eve of this major national and international celebration.

Goatfish Alphabet by Kristen McHenry

Dave Bonta writes...
I am reading this book for the third time in as many years, carrying it into the library like a charm to make the other books talk, and into the gourmet section of the supermarket to awaken lust among the cheeses fresh from their caves. The first few pages bear greasy smudges near the bottom — what had I been eating the last time I read it?
