As admirers and friends of the late Lucille Clifton, a former poet laureate of Maryland, continued to mourn her passing, plans were finalized Tuesday for a pair of memorial services in her honor -- one for family and close friends, the other for the public. The first gathering will be held at noon Thursday at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center in Columbia, the town that Clifton, a native of upstate New York, had adopted as her home many years ago. The public memorial is scheduled for April 10, at 7:30 p.m., in Montgomery Hall on the campus of St. Mary's College of Maryland on the western shore of Chesapeake Bay, where Clifton had been a member of the faculty from 1989 until she retired in 2007.

Former state poet laureate Lucille Clifton, a National Book Award winner whose work was lauded for its "moral quality," died Saturday at Johns Hopkins Hospital after a long battle with cancer and other illnesses. She was 73. With a mix of profundity, earthiness and humor - amply evident in her 11 books of poetry - Ms. Clifton often defied conventional notions of poetic expression, but in many ways her themes were traditional, Wallace R. Peppers wrote in the Dictionary of Literary Biography.
