Mary Ann Mulhern’s upcoming book Brides in Black, a follow-up to the successful poetry collection The Red Dress, has been gaining a great deal of attention over the last few weeks. Set to be released in early Spring 2012, Brides in Black takes Mary Ann back into the convent. Her signature minimal poetic style allows her to share the stories of the nuns who left, the nuns who stayed, and how convent life changed their lives.
Stay tuned to the new Brides in Black blog, currently under construction, for updates on the book.
Mary Ann sat down with Black Moss to talk about her books, her writing process, religion and faith. Check out A Few Words with Mary Ann Mulhern, a short interview directed by filmmaker Josh Kolm.
