Kathleen Sheeder Bonanno will read this week in Hoboken from a book of poems she wrote about her daughter's murder.
 
This sounds like a fantastic event and one that will go to a very important cause:
 
There will be a poetry reading this Thursday, August 13 in Hoboken to benefit Hudson County's domestic violence shelter, Women Rising.
 
Kathleen Sheeder Bonanno will read from her award-winning book of poetry, "Slamming Open the Door."
"Slamming Open the Door" chronicles Bonanno's experience in the aftermath of her daughter's murder.
The book won the Beatrice Hawley Award and two poems from the collection have been nominated for a prestigious Pushcart Prize.
 
A percentage of book sales will be donated to Women Rising.

The reading will be Thursday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Matthew's church in Hoboken at 8th and Hudson streets.
 
Bonanno was recently interviewed by Terry Gross for NPR's Fresh Air. "Slamming Open the Door" is currently listed as #1 in overall poetry sales on Amazon.com and has been favorably reviewed by the New York Times Book Review.
