Queer Poem-a-Day

Queer Poem a day ad

Queer Poem-a-Day is a unique podcast series for Pride Month, presenting a public archive of poems written and read by contemporary LGBTQIA+ poets. For this fourth year, we are sharing a poem each weekday in June on our podcast and on our website. Enjoy this audio trailer featuring a collage of some of our voices for 2024.

Get episodes of poets reading their poems each weekday starting Monday, June 3, 2024 on the Deerfield Public Library Podcast feed—where we also host interviews with authors of all genres and other notable people from Chicagoland and around the world. Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or anywhere you get podcasts. We invite you to check out our archives from year one, year two, and year three’s “Lineage Edition” (or scroll down in the feed!)

Queer Poem-a-Day is founded and co-directed by poet and professor Lisa Hiton and Dylan Zavagno, Adult Services Coordinator at the Library and host of the Deerfield Public Library Podcast. Music for this fourth year of our series is from the second movement of the “Geistinger Sonata,” Piano Sonata No. 2 in C Sharp Minor by Ethel Smyth, performed by pianist Daniel Baer

We are once again grateful to have received generous support from both 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.
