Jeane Marie Beaumont and Herta B. Feely
Poetry and Prose Reading

Sun, 5 Mar, 2017 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Herta B. Feely reads from Saving Phoebe Murrow, a novel that examines cyber bullying in suburban Maryland. Feely is joined visiting poet Jeanne Marie Beaumont, who reads from her fourth poetry collection, Letters from Limbo, which was recently published by CavanKerry Press. The reading will be followed by a reception and book signing.

Herta B. Feely’s short stories and memoir have appeared in several literary journals and anthologies. She received the James Jones First Novel Fellowship and an Artist in Literature Fellowship from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities for a novel in progress, and an American Independent Writing Prize in Personal Essay. She is the co-editor and publisher of Confessions: Fact or Fiction?, an anthology of short stories and memoir which explores the blurred line between true stories and fictional ones. She has worked for causes ranging from human rights violations to alternative energy to childhood injury prevention. In 1988, she co-founded the National Safe Kids Campaign (now Safe Kids Worldwide) with pediatric trauma surgeon, Martin Eichelberger.

Jeanne Marie Beaumont grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs. She is the author of three previous collections of poetry: Burning of the Three Fires, Curious Conduct, and Placebo Effects, a winner in the National Poetry Series. She co-edited The Poets' Grimm: 20th Century Poems from Grimm Fairy Tales. She has taught at The Frost Place, Rutgers University, The Unterberg Poetry Center of the 92nd Street Y, and is on the poetry faculty of the Stonecoast MFA Program at the University of Southern Maine. Since 1983 she has made her home in Manhattan.
