Nonfiction writer Bonnie McEneaney holds a BA from Brown University and an MPS from Cornell. She had a long, successful career as a senior executive in the financial services industry and, more recently, has changed her focus to writing. After losing her husband, Eamon, on 9/11, she published A Bend in the Road, which is a compilation of his poetry. Her new book is Messages: Signs, Visits, and Premonitions from Loved Ones Lost on 9/11. McEneaney lives with her four children in New England and is a board member of Voices of September 11th, a group dedicated to serving the needs of 9/11 families, survivors, and rescue and recovery workers.
McEneaney read from her work on September 16, 2010, in Cornell’s Goldwin Smith Hall. This interview took place earlier the same day.
