Poetry with Gourdine & Duval, April 19
Announcing the fourth reading in our poetry series: This time around we are hosting Quinton Duval and Traci Gourdine.
Quinton Duval is the author of three books of poems: Guerrilla Letters, Dinner Music, and Joe’s Rain. He teaches English and Creative Writing at Solano Community College and is the editor and publisher of Red Wing Press. Dennis Schmitz has called Duval's poems " buoyant and smart, full of feeling, suddenly deep---I think they are marvelous in every way."
Traci Gourdine is a terrific poet whose work has appeared in Calliope, ZYZZYVA, and other small magazines. She is the co-editor of "Night is Gone, Day is Still Coming," a collection of work by young American Indian writers. Her letters to poet Quincy Troupe have been anthologized in the book "Letters to Poets." He currently teaches English at American River College.
The reading is at Sunday, April 19. It starts at around 7 pm. A donation (which goes to the poets) is requested.
