Book Launch Party for To a New Era


Virtual Book Party for To a New Era. With Music by Orly Bendavid and Franklin Bruno. Introduction by Caroline Hagood. Poems and videos by Joanna Fuhrman

Franklin Bruno is the author of The Accordion Repertoire (poetry, Edge Books) and Armed Forces (criticism, in Bloomsbury’s 33 1/3 series). Two chapbooks are forthcoming from above/ground press. As a musician and songwriter, he has released 20 albums with Nothing Painted Blue, as a solo artist, and (currently) The Human Hearts. Raised in Southern California’s Inland Empire, he now lives and works in Jackson Heights, Queens.

Orly Bendavid's songs often explore life’s darker side, shining a light onto difficult emotional situations with unforgettable melodies and lyrics that combine humor and uncompromising honesty. She’s been playing music in NYC with her band the Mona Dahls for over a decade now. Orly Bendavid & the Mona Dahls bring elements of jazz, classical and world music to the arrangements. They have music on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.


Joanna Fuhrman is the author of six books of poetry, including To a New Era (Hanging Loose Press 2021). Recent poems and poetry videos have appeared in The Brooklyn Rail, Conduit, Fence, NAW, Moving Poems, Triquarterly, Posit, and Volt.
