Authors group sets Sequim gallery reading

Those who enjoy the holidays or being outside around local waterways are encouraged to join the Olympic Peninsula Authors for their readings set for 2-3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Blue Whole Gallery, 129 W. Washington St.

This Writers Read event is free and the public is welcome.

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 “The Boys in the Boat,” and fundraising with Sequim Sunrise Rotary for the Joe Rantz Rotary Youth Fund, the second theme is water.

“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,” exhibit curators said.

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