The Quinton Duval Poetry Series continues with readings by poets Allegra Silberstein and Danyen Powell. Readings begin at 7:30, with the last half hour (8:30-9:00) for socializing with poets, obtaining signed copies of their works and light refreshment. All are welcome!
Allegra Jostad Silberstein grew up on a farm in Wisconsin but has lived in California since 1963. Her love of poetry began as a child when her mother would recite poems as she worked. In addition to three chapbooks, her first book, West of Angels, was published by Cold River Press in the spring of 2015. She has been widely published in journals with a growing number on-line. In 2010 she became the first Poet Laureate for the city of Davis. Allegra also performs with the The Third Stage dance company and Front Porch bluegrass group in Davis.
Danyen Powell runs two family businesses and lives in Davis, CA. He mainly writes sparse, image driven poems and believes in reading as many of the great poets from around the world as he can find. He has attended the Sacramento Poetry Center’s Tuesday night workshop for over twenty years and has been its facilitator for over sixteen years.
