Irvington, NJ (BlackNews.com) — Craig A. Garner, Poet Laureate of Irvington, N.J./author has released his eighth book of poetry via his publisher Word Association Publishers entitled You’ll Never Miss Your Water Until Your Well Runs Dry. It is primarily a poetic tribute to those great artists, activists and friends who have recently passed away.

Garner comments, “In the past few years, we have lost some tremendous individuals who I respected for their commitment to their craft and purpose. Just last year, we lost the Honorable Nelson Mandela.”

He continues, “Prior to that, we lost the talented blues poet/musician Gil Scott Heron, and this year we lost the great Amiri Baraka, Maya Angelou, and Ruby Dee. I also lost one of my best friends and neighbors of over thirty years Mrs. Marion Scott, and a wonderful aunt in Ms. Elaine Brown. And, although we are all destined to meet our maker one day, we should never forget those who gave so much of themselves while they were here.”

Garner’s new book, You’ll Never Miss Your Water Until Your Well Runs Dry, acknowledges those folks who touched so many other people with their words and actions. Garner says he is forever indebted to them for their courage, skills, and willingness to share with us their inner most thoughts and visions through their art or personality.

He adds, “But it is also a clarion call to our people to get our acts together in view of all the negative things happening in this world today. Too many young brothers are being incarcerated or killed over the least little thing and nothing is being done about it.”
