An Afternoon of Poetry with Matthew E. Henry
This event is free, but please RSVP. Please look for the “Get Tickets” link on the Bookery MHT web site listing for Author Event with Matthew E. Henry.
Matthew E. Henry is the author of the Colored page (Sundress Publication, 2022), Teaching While Black (Main Street Rag, 2020), and Dust & Ashes (Californios Press, 2020). He has two collections forthcoming in 2023 from New York Quarterly Books (The Third Renunciation) and Harbor Editions (said the Frog to the scorpion). MEH is editor-in-chief of The Weight Journal and an associate poetry editor at Pidgeonholes | He’s been nominated and won some recognition for his poetry, but for some reason he continues to dabble in prose.
He received his MFA in poetry from Seattle Pacific University, yet continued to spend money he didn’t have completing a MA in theology (Andover Newton Theological School) and a PhD in education (Lesley University). But he should not be confused with the long dead, white, theologian.
MEH is an educator whose career has found him teaching English, teacher education, philosophy, and sociology at the high school, college, and graduate levels. His writing shines a black-light on the bed of education, race, relationships, religion, and everything else you’re not supposed to discuss in polite company. He’s been known to make some people irrationally uncomfortable.
