"Bubs," a short story by Mount Saint Mary College Professor Dean Goldberg, was recently published by Albany Poets.

Goldberg is a professor of Digital Media and Film Studies, as well as the director of the Communication, Art, and Digital Media program at the Mount.

The historical fiction piece features "Bubs," a GI returning to civilian life after World War II, and his wife, Miriam, as they buy their first home. It is an imagined scene between Goldberg's mother and father as they begin their postwar lives on Long Island. It can be read here.

Earlier this year, Goldberg's "Old Bill Lee" became the first fiction story published by Albany Poets.

Albany Poets promotes the arts of upstate New York. In addition to publishing poems and now short fiction, Albany Poets also hosts open mic nights, poetry readings, and more, to help give artists a platform to share their art with the world.

In addition to his skill as a writer, Goldberg has extensive background in film and production. He joined the Mount in 2008 and established Mount Media, a creative agency formed with Mount students.

Goldberg directs the Communication, Art, and Digital Media program at the Mount. The program encompasses the study of journalism, video production, advertising, public relations, art, design, and film studies at the college. Housed in the Mount's Division of Arts and Letters, the program prepares students for both traditional and emerging professions.

He is also the co-director of Mount Saint Mary College's CMA Gallery, which exhibits professional art and media picked by Mount faculty from among the rising population of artists who live and work in Newburgh, Beacon, and throughout the Hudson Valley. The current exhibit, "Becoming Visible," is on display at the college through September 25.
