Veronica Golos is the author of Vocabulary of Silence (Red Hen Press, 2/11). An exploration of war and its witnessing-from-afar, “Golos takes the fragments, the bits and pieces that reach us from the battlefield, and weaves them with a morality and a sorrow,” states writer and journalist Barbara Nimri Aziz.
Veronica Golos’ first book, A Bell Buried Deep, co-winner of the 16th Annual Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize (Story Line Press), was nominated for a 2004 Pushcart Prize by Edward Hirsch, and adapted for stage at the Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California. Red Hen Press will re-issue A Bell Buried Deep in 2012.
Golos was a 2003 and 2005 recipient of artist residencies at the Wurlitzer Foundation of Taos, New Mexico, where she now resides with her husband, writer David Perez.
