Please join us at Logos Books’ first in a series of five poetry readings on Thursday, September 29th from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Reading from some of her favorite works will be local poet Allegra Silberstein. Following the reading we will offer light refreshments and an opportunity to chat with the poet as well as purchase signed copies of her work.
Allegra Silberstein was born on a farm in Wisconsin near La Crosse. Her love of poetry began as a child when her mom would recite nursery rhymes and other poems while she was working. She also loves dance and has performed with Pamela Trokanski’s Third Stage Dance Company, and most recently with Bob Wrenn’s World Music Ensemble. Her work has been widely published in journals such as Blue Unicorn, Rattlesnake Review, Yolo Crow, Iodine Poetry Journal, Poetry Now, California Quarterly, and others. She has two chapbooks: Acceptance (1999) and In The Folds (2005). In March 2010 she began the first Poet Laureate to the City of Davis.
