Poetry reading marks autumnal equinox

CHIMACUM — A fall literary gathering is set for Wednesday — the autumnal equinox — at Finnriver Farm & Cidery, 124 Center Road.

In the free event at 5 p.m., Winter texts, a local publisher, will launch a new edition of “The Beaver Valley Radish” zine and preview Terry Persun’s new work, “In Coyote Sunlight.”

Persun, Dylan James Quarles and Haines Whitacre, author of “Accounts of Wreckage,” about the legacy of John Henry, are among those who will read their work Wednesday.

Lovers of books, poetry and story sharing are invited to the event in the farm’s Cider Garden; as with other Finnriver events, proof of vaccination is required for entry.

For details, see Finnriver.com under the “farm events” menu and wintertexts.com.
