Seriously; the woman wrote a poem about Fernet-Branca.
She’s no mere back-of-the-cocktail-napkin scribbler, either. Sheehan is the author of three poetry collections: Bar Book: Poems & Otherwise, Orient Point and Thaw. Her honors include a Whiting Writers’ Award and NYFA Fellowship in Poetry. Her poems have appeared in many magazines and anthologies. She teaches in the MFA program at Stony Brook Southampton.
And have I mentioned the part about her former life as a bartender? Oh yes, this talented poet also has mixology chops. If we get lucky, maybe she’ll give us a little demo on Oct 19.
