Emily Hockaday grew up in Vernon and graduated from Rockville High School in 2003. She received her MFA in Poetry from NYU and has published five chapbooks. Her first full-length collection debuts at Rockville Public Library Oct. 6, with a reading, reception, and book signing at 6:30 pm. The themes of her new book, Naming the Ghost (Cornerstone Press) are motherhood, grief, and chronic illness and—braided through it all—love.
Copies of Emily’s books will be available for purchase during the event.
