Poetry Reading

I'll be one of 3 featured readers this Saturday, Feb. 16th, at the Yippee Museum Café, 9 Bleecker St., noon-2 PM. I invited Eileen Hennessy and Francine Witte to join me, because they are first-rate writers and readers. This will be varied and terrific reading, and an open-mic is included. So please be there and bring something to read in the open.

George Held, Eileen Hennessy, Francine Witte


 Francine Witte is a high school English teacher. She lives on the Upper East Side with her husband, poet and comic Mark Larsen. She writes poetry and flash fiction. In 2012 she received four nominations for a Pushcart Prize -- two for fiction and two for poetry. Her newest poetry chapbook is "Only, Not Only."

A seven-time Pushcart Prize nominee, George Held publishes widely both online and in print. His work appears in the current issues of I-70 Review, Drunk Monkeys, Wilderness House Literary Review, Deronda Review, Mobius, Plainsongs, and Verse Wisconsin, and the anthologies Connections: New York City Bridges in Poetry and Songs of Sandy. His most recent book is Neighbors Too (2013), a sequel to his children’s book of animal poems, illustrated by Joung Un Kim.

When she is not writing poems and flash fiction pieces, Eileen Hennessy earns her living as a translator of foreign-language documentation, studies languages as a hobby, and teaches courses in translation in the Translation Studies Program at New York University. Since the mid-1980s she has built up a lengthy record of publication in numerous literary journals, including The Paris Review, The New York Quarterly, and Confluence, to name just three. This Country of Gale-force Winds, a collection of her poems, was
published by NYQ Books in 2011.
