Queer Poem-a-Day is a special daily podcast series for Pride Month, featuring a recording of a poem written and read by a contemporary LGBTQIA+ poet for each day of June. This is our second year of the series. An archive of our first year (2021) is available on our website. This unique series is released on our website and the Deerfield Public Library Podcast feed, which normally hosts interviews with authors of all genres and other notable people from Chicagoland and around the world.
Queer Poem-a-Day is directed by poet and teacher Lisa Hiton, and Dylan Zavagno, Adult Services Coordinator and host of the Deerfield Public Library Podcast. Music for this second year of our series is the first movement, Schéhérazade, from Masques, Op. 34, by Karol Szymanowski, performed by pianist Daniel Baer. Support for this program is provided by The Friends of the Deerfield Public Library. Queer Poem-a-Day is supported by generous contributions from the Friends of the Deerfield Public Library and the Deerfield Fine Arts Commission.
Queer Poem-a-Day is a program from the Adult Services Department at the Library and may include adult language.
