The Other Voice, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, will present Hannah Stein and Jon Daunt on Friday, Feb. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in church library, 27074 Patwin Road. Open mike and refreshments follow the reading, so bring along a poem to share.
Stein has had a long and happy connection with The Other Voice, and looks forward to her next reading there. Born in Brooklyn, she grew up in New York state and moved with her husband Sherman to Davis decades ago. Poems of hers appear widely in such journals as Nimrod, the American Literary Review, Poetry Flash, Prairie Schooner and Hunger Mountain.
Her most recent publication is a chapbook, “A Broken Music.” Other books include a collection, “Earthlight,” and chapbooks “Schools of Flying Fish” and “Greatest Hits.”
Daunt also lives in Davis and teaches writing at Sacramento City College. He has appeared in many journals such as Cincinnati Poetry Review, Green River Review, Shenandoah, Malahat Review, Mississippi Review and Prairie Schooner.
His first book, “Stone-age Robin Hood,” was published in 1979 by Allegheny Mountain Press. In 2011, his second book, “God Plays Chess With Joan of Arc,” was published by Little M Press.
