Wendy Mnookin

Newton, Massachusetts
Wendy Mnookin’s most recent book of poetry is Dinner with Emerson (Tiger Bark Press, 2016.) To Get Here, her book about her son’s drug addiction, explores her family’s struggle with his addiction--what happened "to get here," what is unknowable, how they emerged. Wendy has received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and a book award from the New England Poetry Club. She has taught at Emerson College, Boston College, and Grub Street, and at summer workshops around the country.
