A couple of articles online published in the past couple of days, giving news of his death and accounts of his life and work: here, and here.
(Thanks to Jilly Dybka, in whose Poetry Hut Blog I found the first link here, and to poet friend Sharon Doubiago, who e-mailed the second link here.)
I wrote briefly about Darwish in a previous blogpost, here.

I'm going to the Albuquerque Cultural Conference again this year, Labor Day weekend, end of this month. I went last year and loved it -- you can read my comments about last year's conference here.
Last I knew, they don't have a website up for the conference at present, however if you'd like more info you can e-mail the conference organizers at: ABQConference2008 [ at ] yahoo [ dot ] com.
In the meantime, will be back soon. --
