Third Year of Quinton Duval Poetry Series Draws to a Close

Logos Books was delighted to end the 2012-13 Quinton Duval Poetry Series with the readings of local poets Katherine Hastings and Iris Jamahl Dunkle.

Iris Dunkle, who resides in Sebastopol and teaches writing and literature in a variety of colleges in the area, then read an assortment of poems from her 2013 debut poetry collection Gold Passage. IMG_0443

Katherine Hastings read poems from Cloud Fire, but treated us to a preview of poems which will appear in an upcoming book to be published this coming winter.Attendees had the opportunity to purchase poetry collections, and then have them signed by the poets.  Light refreshments gave everyone a chance to relax and chat at evening’s end.IMG_0446

This year’s slate of poets in the Quinton Duval Poetry Series has been stellar:  Hannah Stein, Susan Kelly-DeWitt, Emmanuel Sigauke, Denise Lichtig, Kathryn Hohlwein, Victoria Dalkey, Lynne Knight and Jeff Knorr all read at Logos this past year.  We are looking forward to planning our 2013-14 poetry series, and hope that you will put the dates on your calendar, as an evening of poetry in an intimate setting is a treat that you deserve!  Till next Fall then!
