This post comes from a dear friend, Allen Bernard, who thought Mary Anthony should be honored especially by Cincinnatians and Northern Kentuckians.
And, I’ll be darned, Mary Price Boday! You never told us you were a writer, a biographer of A Dancer’s Journey. Is it published yet? Please let us all know. I will put a link for your writing as I did with Stuart Hodes’ memoir among others (Richard Holden’s story is available to read for free online)
I did not encounter Mary Anthony in this lifetime, yet I surely honor her gifts of expression. That final line in A. Kisselgoff’s writing resonates powerfully with me: “Find a verse of poetry and become it.”
Thank you, Mary
