The Poe House Presents reading series returns in 2021 with a new slate of Maryland authors from the Maryland Writers’ Association. Join us the second Sunday of each month as we welcome a new author for a reading of selected Poe stories/poems and an excerpt of their written work. Sign up for this and other Poe House Presents sessions at http://PoeHousePresents2021.eventbrite.com.
Amy Bernstein will read from Poe’s essay, “The Philosophy of Furniture,” then share excerpts from her forthcoming novel, Ell.
Amy L. Bernstein writes about the intersection of politics and culture for the page, the stage, and forms in between. Her novel, “Ell,” will be published by Scarsdale Publishing in 2021, followed by “The Potrero Complex” from Regal House Publishing in 2022. She is also the author of the teen novel “Fran, the Second Time Around.” Selected short plays are published by Routledge and Leicester Bay Theatricals; short fiction by Flying Ketchup Press, Fleas on the Dog, and Parliament Lit; and poetry by Passaic/Voluspa and Yellow Arrow Journal. She is a 2020 finalist for the Petrichor Prize from Regal House Publishing; a 2014 recipient of a Ruby Artist Award from the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance; and an award-winning former journalist and executive speechwriter.
