Poet Jehanne Dubrow to Give Reading at Washington College

Chestertown, MD — Washington College's 2008-2009 Sophie Kerr Lecture Series continues with a reading by poet Jehanne Dubrow at the Rose O'Neill Literary House on Tuesday, October 7, at 4:30 p.m.

Dubrow is currently a Visiting Professor of English at Washington College. She earned her Ph.D. in English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; she also has an M.F.A. in Creative Writing, Poetry, from the University of Maryland and a B.A. from St. John's College.

Dubrow's work has appeared in Poetry, The Hudson Review, The New England Review, Shenandoah, Barrow Street and Gulf Coast. She is the author of a chapbook, The Promised Bride (Finishing Line Press). Her full-length collection won the 2007 Three Candles Press First Book Prize and will be published in 2008.

The Sophie Kerr Lecture Series honors the legacy of the late Sophie Kerr, a writer from Denton, Md., whose generosity has enriched Washington College's literary culture. The 2008-2009 series includes poetry readings, fiction readings, lectures and, as its culmination in March 2009, a special appearance by two-time U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser.

Admission to Dubrow's reading is free and open to the public. For more information, call 410/778-7879.
