Andrew Oerke Dies Suddenly

Andrew Oerke has died unexpectedly, though he had had some long-standing health problems from his time in Africa. His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and in numerous other magazines. In 2006, African Stiltdancer and San Miguel de Allende were published jointly by Swan Books and the UN Society for Writers and Artists. They have received the United Nations Literature Award. His most recent book, Never Seek to Tell Thy Love, was published in 2010. Look for two of his newer unpublished poems in the upcoming summer issue of 2RV.
