Dear Friends:  Fall in New England…I’m completely distracted by the amazing color all around me!  Since the release of Checks & Love Letters, my life seems to have picked up a lot of speed.  It’s been a wonderful ride so far, full of great reviews and unique offers.  So much so, that I just realized that I haven’t sent a newsletter in quite awhile.

PANDORA:  Make Bernice Lewis your radio station!

UKULELES: The Fourth Annual Ukulele Festival is taking place from 3 – 7 PM on Sunday Oct 26
at Waubeeka Golf Links 137 New Ashford Rd (Rte 7, just south of the intersection of RTE 43) Williamstown, MA 01267. Performing artists this year are The Ladies Auxiliary Ukulele OrchestraUncle ZacMichelle J Rodguez, Madeleine Jason, Ella Sears, Sophie Lane, and Mariah Colorado

RAFT THE GRAND CANYON WITH ME:  The NPS has released dates for upcoming raft trips. We have have been offered the opportunity to raft the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon from May 6-13, 2016. I understand that these dates seem (and are) terribly far away, but that’s how this permit process works.  Arizona Raft Adventures has so many requests for spring trips that all the other slots offered to them are already assigned and they have a waiting list.  To hold this trip, we will have to have a deposit to them this month. Drop me a line for the details!

NERFA: I just returned from my first SWERFA conference in Texas, where I wrote three songs in a weekend.  A record for me!  Next up is NERFA, which takes place in early November in Kerhonkson, NY.  Once again, I’ll be hosting The Ladies Room, as well as showcasing for others.  For those of you attending, I’ll post my schedule soon.

RADIO & PODCASTS: Check out Mariah and I being interviewd by Janet Feld.  Episode 5 at Janet’s Planet Radio Hour on True 2 You Radio

WEBCAST: Catch the After Dinner LIVE webcast here.  A special thanks to Tom and Robin Romeo at Wherefore Arts, their crew, and my special in studio audience for helping me make the best video ever!

ARTIST EDUCATOR:  Most of you know that I often go to schools to talk about my family’s emigration from Germany in 1940, during WWII.  Recently, I signed with Arts Are Essential, a booking agency for Artist/Educators.  I’m excited to be working with them and hope to bring my presentation to a school near you soon.

Feb in NJ/PA
Feb in TX, LA
Mar in AZ, UT, NM

” Lewis takes a break from setting her insights to music to open up a world of domesticity.  Hers is the voice of a woman who has traveled and thought a great deal, and now brings these perspectives to a more intimate canvas as wife, mother and world citizen.  “Domestic” does not mean settled for this poet.  It is the name for a lens through which to view the often unsettling experiences of any life:  love, friendship, parenthood, and the constant need to express, within the limits of word, the often unexpressible”.
