Daniel “Danny” Farnsworth Kerwick, one of New Orleans’ beloved culture bearers, passed away in the spring of 2017 while helping family in his birthplace of Rochester, New York. He was a poet, playwright, artist, friend and mentor to countless others in the poetry, music and art community in and beyond the city of New Orleans. A chapbook of his last poems, “Star Juggler” is available from FootHills Publishing. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to New Orleans’ Musicians’ Clinic, which rendered him aid during his terminal illness. Although he never made it back bodily to his adopted second home-place of New Orleans, the city, its poets, artists and community that was touched by him will forever consider itself a home-place for him and his great soul.
