Dennis Hock and Constance Carter parch our thirst at Poetry Reading
The drought may have been officially declared in California, but the verse of Constance Carter and Dennis Hock washed over all in attendance last night, transporting us to new lands and realities.
The evening began with Sarah Phelan reading a poem from Duval’s collection “Joe’s Rain”. Constance Carter was up next, with poems that had us traveling with her from Prague to Tibet and then back home again to Sacramento. Dennis Hock led us on a journey to see the universe in the everyday – a different kind of travel to end the evening!
Though the readings concluded at 8:30, the crowd did not break up till 9:00: good conversation and the exchange of ideas and good cheer bringing the evening to its close. Hope to see you at the next Logos poetry reading in the Quinton Duval series on Thursday, March 13th at 7:30 pm, featuring poets Edythe Schwartz and Bob Stanley.
