R.I.P. Ann Bogle

by Daniel Harris

It is with great sadness I announce the passing of Ann Bogle on February 28, 2023 after a brief illness. Ann was longtime contributor and editor of these pages and a champion of small press and emerging writers.

I knew Ann since the late 1970's when she was an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was the close friend of one of my graduate students, Bruce Johnson, who remained a valued friend and confidant until her death.

Ann was frequently a visitor to our home in Brooklyn, NY where she and my wife, Maureen E. Mulvihill, would compare notes on the travails of being a professional writer. Ann championed my music as well as my writing and art. She commissioned me to illustrate "Country Without A Name" and several of her stories and poems. 

She is survived by a sister and a brother. At this time there is no information about funeral or memorial services.
