“The Luminosity” Book Launch

3: A Taos Press is pleased to invite you to the the Book Launch Celebration for Bonnie Rose Marcus’, The Luminosity, at the Rigpa New York City Center at 227 West 29 Street, (between 7th and 8th Avenues), 6th Floor, New York City on Sunday, September 15th at 4 p.m. 

Bonnie Rose Marcus will read from her just released book with an opening introduction and reading by Andrea L. Watson, poet and founding publisher of 3: A Taos Press.

The Luminosity, a poignant new poetry book, was inspired by poet Bonnie Rose Marcus’ visits to women and men in home hospice, hospice units, as well as nursing homes.  Her poems are intimate portraits of their dying–threading the gritty reality with the transcendent.  Each poem reveals a deep connection made between the poet and those at the end of their lives, as they both balance upon that fragile precipice between life and death.

Poet, theatre artist, Buddhist practitioner, and hospice volunteer, Bonnie Rose Marcus is Director of the Readings & Workshops Program (East) and Writers Exchange at Poets & Writers. Her poetry has been published in Salon, Brooklyn and Miss Fit’s Free Press, a 1990’s zine she created.  Marcus has read and performed her poetry in New York City; Washington D.C., and in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and New Mexico.  Marcus facilitates classes in meditation, compassion practices, and contemplative end-of-life care.  Bonnie Rose Marcus may be contacted at berosemarcus@yahoo.com.
