Quinton Duval Poetry Series Ends with Panache!

October 29, 2016

redwingA full house of poets and poetry lovers were present to fête the end of the Quinton Duval Poetry Series at Logos Books. Series organizer, Sarah Phelan, was a friend and colleague of Quinton Duval for many years. In his memory the series took shape, bringing prominent local and more far-flung poets to read at Logos over the past seven years.

Last night many of them came back to help us remember and celebrate those poetry evenings. Poets reading were: Hannah Stein, Edythe Schwartz, Thomas Mitchell, Lois Requist, Albert Garcia, Trina Drotar, Stan Zumbiel, Heather Hutcheson, Mary Zeppa, Susan Kelly-DeWitt, Martha Evans, Dennis Schmitz, Sandy Thomas, Martha Ann Blackman, Allegra Silberstein and Andy Jones.

Logos Books would like to thank each of the poets who read for their participation in the series. You brought beautiful words and a richness of language to all who attended. We wish you all well, and hope to hear more of you and your poetry in the future.

And here, some photos of a wonderful time had by all!
