Not that anyone needs an excuse to travel to the gorgeous Applegate Valley, but poetry is an excellent reason for a road trip. The Applegate Poets will present a reading on Sunday, July 27 from 3pm to 4 pm, in the community meeting room of the Applegate Branch Library.
The poems will consider aspects of living in the Applegate Valley. The poets reading are Diana Coogle, Gabriella Eagleson, Heather Murphy, Joan Peterson, Kirsten Shockey and Paul Tipton. Expect a pleasant hour of vibrant poetry in a charming setting. Then maybe afterward, enjoy the sights and maybe a glass of wine or two in one of the prettiest valleys in Oregon.
Speaking of wine and the sunny Applegate, the second annual Wine & Words poetry reading at Barking Moon Farm is Saturday, August 16th, 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm. The event will feature farm-to-table appetizers with Barking Moon produce and local wines.
Fourteen southern oregon poets and storytellers will read from their original work. The evening will be a treat for poetry fans, foodies, wine lovers or anyone who wants to spend a late summer evening in a beautiful setting.
The event takes place in the Barn at Barking Moon Farm, 5960 Thompson Creek Road.
A $15 entry includes one drink and appetizers. For more information or to RSVP contact Melissa Matthewson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (541) 973-6915.
