2012 was a great year at Logos Books. We surpassed our projected donation of $30,000, and gave $35,000 in total combined donations to Save the Children and Doctors without Borders.
We continue to be the only used books store in Davis, and strive to meet the challenge. We would like to thank our many dedicated volunteers and, you, our valued customers, for your patronage and support.

The “happy few” were rewarded with some gems last night, at the second evening of the Quinton Duval Poetry Series at Logos Books. Sarah Phelan began the evening with one of Quinton’s poems, and both Heather Hutcheson and Albert Garcia returned the favor at the beginning and ending of their own readings.
Heather favored her readers with poems infused with Spanish vocabulary and cultural icons from her recent stays in Oaxaca and Mexico City. Her insights on other cultures, and thus, our own, were revealing.
Albert convulsed the room with one of his poems entitled “Meeting” which was a biting and cynical view of the droning patter which many of us have experienced in meetings we have attended throughout our own lives. Other pieces inspired by his childhood and life in his county home filled out the reading.
The crown enjoyed light refreshments and conversation before departing. Hope you’ll join us at our next evening with Constance Carter and Dennis Hock on Thursday, January 23rd at 7:30 pm.

Logos Books is proud to present the fourth year of the Quinton Duval Poetry Series, and invites you to attend our next reading on Thursday, November 14th. Poetry readings begin promptly at 7:30, followed by the opportunity to mingle with the poets, purchase chap books and enjoy light refreshment. For more on the featured poets for November keep reading!
Albert Garcia has published two books of poems, Rainshadow (Copper Beech Press) and Skunk Talk (Bear Star Press), as well as Digging In: Literature for Developing Writers (Prentice Hall). Individual poems have appeared in many journals including Prairie Schooner, Mid-American Review, North American Review, Yankee, Poetry East, and Willow Springs. His work has appeared in Ted Kooser’s American Life in Poetry and has been read by Garrison Keillor in The Writer’s Almanac.
A native of Northern California, Albert grew up on a walnut orchard near Red Bluff. He now lives in the rural community of Wilton, California, and serves as dean of the Language and Literature Division at Sacramento City College.
Heather Hutcheson is a Professor of English at Cosumnes River College (CRC). At CRC, Heather serves as a founding editor of the campus literary journal, the Cosumnes River Journal, co-hosts a literary reading series, and organizes an annual senior and student memoir conference, Our Life Stories, each Spring. Heather spends the majority of her time outside of the classroom working to promote the arts and literacy in Sacramento: she has been an Arts Commissioner since 2008, convenes an annual community service and philanthropy event, and she is the co-president of the Colonial Heights Friends of the Library. Heather’s poems are inspired by, among other things, her travels to Oaxaca, Mexico and her commitment to learning (and teaching) language.

If Davis Senior High Homecoming and the Pajamarino kept you away from the downtown Second Friday Art About last night, here are some photos to show you what you missed but . . . you can still catch a glimpse of her whimsical menagerie if you come on down between now and the end of December.
Ann’s show was attended by a delightful mix of old friends, family and passers-by. Attendees were able to chat with the artist and have her explain her ideas and technique more fully.In addition, the tunes of Joaquin Feliciano provided additional entertainment – and at one point were even a match for the Cal Aggie Marching Ban- duh!
Hope we see you at the Second Friday Art About events in November and December, when Ann will have additional prints for sale that would make wonderful holiday gifts. Yes – we are getting to be about that time of year. So, come on in and check out the books and art at Logos this Fall!
