Quinton Duval Poetry Series Concludes for 2016 – but wait, there’s more!

April 20, 2016


Poet Laureate, Jeff Knorr, and Sacramento poet, Susan Kelly-DeWitt, were featured last night at a well-attended evening of poetry that wrapped up the Quinton Duval Poetry Series at Logos Books for this year.  As always, Sarah Phelan put us in the mood by beginning the readings  with “Time’s Arrow” by Quinton Duval.  

We had thought that the next time we’d welcome you all to Logos Books for a poetry evening would be in the Fall.  However, we are pleased to announce one more poetry event for this spring:

Please join us on Thursday, May 26, 7:30 pm at Logos Books, 513 2nd Street, Davis for “An Evening of Poetry:  Pat Hickerson and Friends”, celebrating the life and poems of this local poet.  Her much-anticipated posthumous poetry collection, Outcry, has been released from R.L. Crow press and is now available on Amazon.    Several of her fellow poets will read from this and other of her works, and light refreshments will be served at evening’s end.  All are welcome!
