The second poetry evening in the Quinton Duvall Poetry Series at Logos Books managed to pull in a good group last evening. Sarah Phelan opened the reading with the humorous poem “Nostalgia” from Quinton’s book Dinner Music.
Denise Lichtig, local poet and owner of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, clearly finds much of her inspiration in the east, as many of her poems have references to China and India. She read a variety of her works, and had her chap book Crystal Gods on hand at the end of the evening to sign for participants.
The poetic journey continued to Zimbabwe with the works of Emmanuel Sigauke, who currently teaches writing at Consumnes River College. Many of the poems he read come from a collection that he is working on at present, After 16, allowing the audience a peek into the creative writing process itself.
The reception following the reading offered the chance to speak further with the poets and fellow audience members, while enjoying light refreshments. We hope that you will be able to attend the next poetry evening at Logos Books, at 7:30 on Thursday, January 24, 2013, featuring poets Kathryn Hohlwein and Victoria Dalkey.
