THOMAS LUX (1946-2017) Poet, Teacher, Friend, In Loving Memory

On Sunday, February 5, 2017, Thomas Lux passed away. For the Palm Beach Poetry Festival, Tom’s death has left all of us bereft.

In addition to Tom’s biographical history, his 14 collections of poems, his well-earned prizes, awards and accolades, his teaching and reading at every festival, his service as chair of the Poets Advisory Board, and his boundless and enduring friendship, our Founder has addressed what he calls Thomas Lux’s role of fatherhood of the Palm Beach Poetry Festival in his Note From Miles Coon.

The 14th Annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival will be an homage and celebrate our friend, including A Tribute to Thomas Lux, on Saturday, January 20, 2018. The festival is and shall be an homage to Thomas Lux who made it all possible.
