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.

If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to check out the recent exhibit of Jeff Granett’s prints at Logos Books, hurry on down and do so, as they will be on display only until the end of June. Jeff is displaying works that employ a new technique : plexiglass, which affords him a greater range of precision in his prints.
The Second Friday Art About reception was well attended, and the music of Stephan Hudson and Milena Schaller added to the festive atmosphere. But, if you haven’t had an opportunity to come by and see Jeff’s art for yourself, you will want to do so soon!

Logos Books was delighted to end the 2012-13 Quinton Duval Poetry Series with the readings of local poets Katherine Hastings and Iris Jamahl Dunkle.
The evening began with Sarah Phelan reading the poem “Agenda” from Duval’s book of poetry Like Hay.
Iris Dunkle, who resides in Sebastopol and teaches writing and literature in a variety of colleges in the area, then read an assortment of poems from her 2013 debut poetry collection Gold Passage.
Katherine Hastings read poems from Cloud Fire, but treated us to a preview of poems which will appear in an upcoming book to be published this coming winter.Attendees had the opportunity to purchase poetry collections, and then have them signed by the poets. Light refreshments gave everyone a chance to relax and chat at evening’s end.
This year’s slate of poets in the Quinton Duval Poetry Series has been stellar: Hannah Stein, Susan Kelly-DeWitt, Emmanuel Sigauke, Denise Lichtig, Kathryn Hohlwein, Victoria Dalkey, Lynne Knight and Jeff Knorr all read at Logos this past year. We are looking forward to planning our 2013-14 poetry series, and hope that you will put the dates on your calendar, as an evening of poetry in an intimate setting is a treat that you deserve! Till next Fall then!
