CELEBRATING SPOKE
the Davis High School Literary Magazine
published December 2017


In an era of tweets and Instagram and Snapchat, here’s something to celebrate: teenagers creating a magazine.

The public is invited to join the celebration of the December 2017 publication of The Spoke, a literary magazine created by Davis High School students under the guidance of teacher Kelly Wilkerson.  The students will be on hand to discuss and read their work Friday, February 16, from 6-8 pm at Logos Books, 513 2nd Street in downtown Davis.

Thirty-five students contributed original fiction, poetry, art, comics and photography to the magazine, which had a run of 1000 copies.  It is free, and copies will be available Feb. 16.  Editor-in-chief Claire Bachand, assisted by writing editors Mattias Apse, Amelia Biscardi, Sophia Lodigiani and art/photo editors Samantha Kurtz and Emily Perry, began the planning in August of 2017.  Submissions were due in October, and selection, editing and layout were completed by the end of the year.

The final publication is 48 pages long.  During a time when communication is fragmentary and fleeting, The Spoke represents an effort by the students to capture themselves at this point in their lives. 

“The Spoke was last published in June of 2017,” Bachand said, creating a benchmark for the growth experienced in six months. Plans are under discussion for one more publication before graduation in June.

For anyone despairing of the next generation’s contribution to the arts, The Spoke celebration party will set fears to rest.  Join us in toasting these young artists!

Logos Books will host a father/son art exhibit in January and February.  Rolland Caulkins is an up and coming photographer. His father, Gordon Caulkins, is an internationally published cartoonist. Rolland will be sharing his photographs of exotic cars. His work focuses a quiet attention to the details often overlooked in these magnificent machines.  Gordon will show a collection of his cartoons: a brash collision of lowbrow gags and groan-inducing puns, pop culture and academia.

Music will feature guitarist Ernie Silva, serving up mellow, warm tunes on a cold night.
