Cervena Barva Press Reading Series
Mary Bonina’s two poetry collections, Clear Eye Tea and Living Proof, and her memoir My Father’s Eyes, were all published by Cervena Barva Press. She has a novel-in-progress and is also the author Lunch in Chinatown, a chapbook of poems inspired by the experience of teaching English to new immigrants in a workplace setting. Recent personal essays have appeared in Poets and Writers and Adelaide. Other poetry, memoir, and essays have appeared in Worcester Review, Gulf Stream, Salamader, Hanging Loose, and other journals and anthologies. Her poem, “Drift,” won a Boston Contemporary Authors Award and is a permanent public art installation in the City.
Bonina, a member of the Writers Room of Boston and a VCCA Fellow, has collaborated with composer Paul Sayed, and with sculptor B Amore. Seven poems from Clear Eye Tea were set to music by composer Christopher Montgomery. 

DeWitt Henry's most recent collection is SWEET MARJORAM: NOTES AND ESSAYS (MadHat, 2018). A new collection, ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS: FAMILY ESSAYS is scheduled for 2020. He was the founding editor of Ploughshares and is Prof. Emeritus at Emerson College. Details at www.dewitthenry.com
