December Writers Read






If you love the holidays or being outside around our wonderful waterways, then please join the Olympic Peninsula Authors for their readings from 2-3p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Blue Whole Gallery, 129 W. Washington St. This Writers Read event is free and the public is welcome.

The authors will be reading their poem or prose pieces centering on two themes in December. The first is holidays in all its possible meanings, for better or for worse. As the gallery is celebrating the release of the movie Boys in the Boat, and fundraising with Sequim Sunrise Rotary for the Joe Rantz Rotary Youth Fund, the second theme is water, whether that is boating, rain or even bowls for thirsty pooches.

“With their words and our art, we hope not only to preserve history, but to also remind us that the stories we tell and the art we produce have the power to help others,” said the curators of the Boys in the Boat exhibit.

The Blue Whole Gallery hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Saturday, and 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, visit and
