Poetry lovers enjoyed an evening of poignancy, laughter, horror, tenderness, wonder and whimsy with Dr. Andy Jones, our featured poet for this last poetry evening in the 2014-15 Quinton Duval Poetry Series at Logos Books. It was a tribute to all he has contributed to our community that Dr. Andy drew a very good crowd of admirers, who could then sit back and enjoy the beauty he brings to his craft. Those interested in purchasing a signed copy of his latest book “Where’s Jukie?”(including essays by his wife, Kate Duren) can find it in the front window of Logos Books. Additional copies can be had by contacting Dr. Andy Jones directly at andyojones.com
Sarah Phelan, a friend and colleague of the late Quinton Duval, began the evening with a reading of his poem “Back Street Story” from the his poetry book Like Hay. We look forward to seeing you in late September, when the sixth year of the Quinton Duval Poetry Series begins its 2015-16 program at Logos Books .

Thursday, May 21st, 6-8 pm: Medieval Poetry and the History of English, a Workshop at Logos Books
Ac yete amiddes hem ful right
The quen was oway y-twight,
With fairi forth y-nome.
Men wist never wher sche was bicome.*
Medieval English poetry often seems to be written in a different, incomprehensible language. And yet, the poetry of the fourteenth century fundamentally shaped not only the entirety of English literary tradition but also the way that we speak English today. Join the award-winning faculty of the UC Davis English department to discuss medieval poetry and the history of the English language. Using evocative, intriguing Middle English texts, this workshop will explore the history of the language and even teach you to read and recite a medieval poem in its authentic style of pronunciation. No prior experience or knowledge necessary; just bring your curiosity about history and poetry.
“But right away, from the midst of all of them, the queen was snatched, seized away by an enchantment. Men never knew where she had gone” (Sir Orfeo, early fourteenth century, lines 191-94)

Comment allez-vous faire face aux restrictions de consommation qui vous seront imposées dans les semaines à venir.
A vous la parole! En attendant le plaisir de votre participation vive et informée chaque deuxième mercredi du mois à Logos Books.
Voici un article qui peut vous mettre un peu plus à la page:
