Library To Sponsor Reading by Award-Winning Poet
The Talbot County Free Library will sponsor a reading by award-winning poet Jehanne Dubrow on Thursday, April 14, at 5:30 p.m., in Easton’s Promise at 107 Goldsborough Street, Easton. In addition to reading from her work, Dubrow will talk about life in the world of poetry and what it is like to try to make a living as a poet.

Dubrow is the author of three collections of poetry, including her most recent, “Stateside,” which describes her experiences as a military spouse. Her first book, “The Hardship Post” (2009), won the Three Candles Press Open Book Award, and her second, “From the Fever-World,” won the Washington Writers’ Publishing House Poetry Competition (2009). Finishing Line Press published her chapbook, “The Promised Bride,” in 2007.

Her poetry, creative nonfiction, and book reviews have appeared in journals such as “The New Republic,” “Poetry,” “Ploughshares,” “The Hudson Review,” “The New England Review,” “Barrow Street,” “Gulf Coast,” “Blackbird,” “Shenandoah,” and “Prairie Schooner,” as well as on Poetry Daily and Verse Daily. Her work has been featured on NPR’s “Fresh Air,” on the PBS News Hour’s “Art Beat” blog, and on the Academy of American Poets website.

The daughter of American diplomats, Jehanne Dubrow was born in Italy and grew up in Yugoslavia, Zaire, Poland, Belgium, Austria, and the United States. She is married to an officer in the U.S. Navy and currently lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where she is an assistant professor of creative writing and literature at Washington College. In her spare time, Dubrow teaches classes at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD.
