‘Visible Cities’ Poetry Project @ DPL

‘Visible Cities’ Poetry Project @ DPL

complicated weatherThe Visible Cities is a poetry project developed by Ryan Collins, and sponsored by Quad City Arts, to coincide with a poetry residency he will have in the Quad City area October 19-22, 2009. The theme for this project/residency is: Looking at Place and Identity through Poetry. How do we shape the places around us? How do those places shape us?

The Visible Cities will be an exploration of questions such as these. It encourages everyone to examine the place where we are, places we have been and how place informs who we are, how we behave and how we live.

The Davenport Public Library is proud to host Mr. Collins on Thursday, October 22, at 4:00 p.m. at the Fairmount Branch (3000 N. Fairmount Street) for a special book discussion of his recently published chapbook, Complicated Weather, which complements the Visible Cities project.

If you are interested in reading Ryan Collins’ chapbook and discussing it at the Library, contact Angela at 563-888-3371 to reserve a copy, or register at For more information about the project, visit:
