A quiet downtown with plenty of parking (spring break has its perks!) allowed a small group of listeners to hear a special pairing of poets last night. Bay Area Poet, Lynne Knight, read from her chap book Again, as well as a select number of poems dealing with the very human feeling of shame. Sacramento Poet Laureate, Jeff Knorr,treated us to a variety of his poems: from Bull Riders and Rodeo Queens to Lost Children to Classroom Encounters to Fishing! Sarah Phelan began the evening by reading a poem from the Duval chap book Like Hay, from which both Lynn and Jeff chose and read a favorite poem as well. Refreshments and discussion brought the evening to a pleasant close.
Our next poetry evening – and the last in this year’s Logos series- will be Thursday, May 9th from 7:30-9:00 pm, and feature poets Katherine Hastings and Iris Jamahl Dunkle.
