DT100: INTERNET APP VERSION OF DYLAN THOMAS WALKING TOUR OF
GREENWICH VILLAGE, NEW YORK, TO BE PRODUCED AND A TOURIST POCKET-
BOOK VERSION TO BE PUBLISHED AND LAUNCHED IN NEW YORK AS PART
OF THE DT100 AMERICA CELEBRATIONS, STARLESS AND BIBLE-BLACK

 
 
The Welsh Government and The British Council (Wales) are to produce an internet
app version of the DYLAN THOMAS WALKING TOUR OF GREENWICH VILLAGE, NEW
YORK for the DT100 celebrations in New York in 2014. It will be based on the original self-guided tour, which was written by Peter and Aeronwy Thomas.

A tourist pocket-book version of the WALKING TOUR by Peter and Aeronwy,
which will include such rarities as a drawing of Dylan by Caitlin and an unpublished photo of David Slivka's and Ibram Lassaw's death mask of Dylan in the making, will  be published in January 2014.

With a foreword by Hannah Ellis, the granddaughter of Dylan Thomas, the book
will be the centrepiece of a New York visit by the First Minister of Wales and other dignitaries in February 2014, when they will be guided on the actual Walking Tour by Peter and Hannah as part of the DT100 launch in America.

The book will also be launched at Poets House, New York, in early March,
organised by Stanley H. Barkan, Peter's American publisher, and in several other American states during 2014, including Boston and California.

The Welsh launch of the DYLAN THOMAS WALKING TOUR OF GREENWICH VILLAGE
tourist pocket-book will take place at the museum in May, when Peter will also

POEM IN FIRST WORLD WAR FILM

A new poem by Peter, LAMENT FOR SOLDIERS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR, is to

Whilst in America, he will participate in readings and talks in Salem. He will be inducted as a honorary member into the Phi Sigma Iota Society at Salem State University for his worldwide contribution as a poet and publisher. He will also participate in the launch of BRIDGING THE WATERS, a bilingual (English/Korean) and international anthology of poetry at Poets House, New York.

Peter will return to Big Sur, California, for a fourth time as a writer-in-residence throughout the whole of July and August.
