The Iron Curtain as Poetic Muse

The poet Jehanne Dubrow spent time as a child with her American diplomat parents in Soviet eastern Europe.
Her latest collection of poetry is called Red Army Red, and the drama and absurdity of life behind the Iron Curtain jumps off the page.
"I remember the night martial law was imposed in Poland," Dubrow tells Tom Hall. "My parents had a number of intellectuals who were over for dinner and the phone started ringing. It became clear that most of these guests weren't going to be able to go home that night. So they slept on the floor, and it was like a martial law slumber party."
Jehanne Dubrow is director of the Rose O’Neill Literary House and an assistant professor of creative writing at Washington College in Chestertown.
Dubrow will also read Thursday, February 21 at the University of Baltimore as part of the university's MFA Reading Series. The reading, which will be at 7:00pm in the UB Student Center, corner of Maryland and Mt. Royal Aves, is free and open to the public.
