From the Deerfield Public Library Blog:
Queer Poem-a-Day is a limited-run daily podcast series, featuring a recording of a poem written and read by a contemporary LGBTQIA+ poet each day of Pride month, June 2021. The intention is to build a resource for national and worldwide listeners, poetry readers, students, and educators, and provide a snapshot of queer poetry today.
This unique, limited-run series will be released on the Deerfield Public Library Podcast. You’ll be able to read the text of the poems and find more information about our poets on our series website at deerfieldlibrary.org/queerpoemaday. Or follow along on social media with the hashtag #queerpoemaday. Additionally, you can find books and ebooks by our participating poets in our Library’s catalog.
Queer Poem-a-Day is founded and co-directed by poet and teacher Lisa Hiton, Dylan Zavagno, Adult Services Coordinator at the Library and host of the Deerfield Public Library Podcast.
Listen below to our teaser trailer where Lisa and I introduce the series. We invite you to subscribe to the Deerfield Public Library Podcast today so you don’t miss a poem this June.
Queer Poem-a-Day is supported by a generous gift of The Friends of the Deerfield Public Library. Music for our special podcast series is from the first movement of Excursions, Op. 20 by Samuel Barber, performed by pianist Daniel Baer.
