It’s time gear up for this Saturday’s Oh, Bernice! reading! Come on out to Sunnyside, Queens and help us herald in the End Times (if you’re into that sort of thing) with a night of poetry and prose. First up: Bernice’s own Deborah Fried-Rubin. Last month she was the hostess with the mostess, now this month you can catch her as the reader with the… cedar… sounding voice… who… You know what? She’s just the reader with the mostess — I don’t care if that doesn’t rhyme.
Deborah Fried-Rubin is pursuing her MFA in Creative Writing at Queens College, CUNY after many years of practicing law, and is a recipient of Queens College’s Silverstein-Peiser Award for Poetry and a former writer-in-residence at the Louis Armstrong House Museum. Her work has appeared in the anthology Why I Am Not A Painter (Argos Books), and at Broadsided Press (online), as well as in WSQ’s VIRALissue. Her chapbooks Language of the Lost and Found and Go Soon are both forthcoming from Finishing Line Press. She lives on Long Island with her husband and three children.
