We invite all Weathered Pages contributors to share part of their weekend with Blue Begonia, Inklings and Oak Hollow as we celebrate the book and the holiday season. Drop by and lend a hand as we explain this important work to curious shoppers.

Join Jim, Terry, Dan and Rob around the tables. The events will be a great opportunity to meet your readers, make connections to other poets in the anthology and help us sign several boxes of books.

The current show at Oak Hollow, "Gifts From the Artists' Hands," features jewelry, painting, drawing, pottery, sculpture, weaving, photography, fiber arts and crafts by 55 local and regional artists. It runs through the holiday season.

Working Signs Reading, Tuesday December 20th at 8pm,
hosted by Inkling Bookshop.

Blue Begonia’s chapbook series, Working Signs, is pleased to announce the first reading devoted solely to the work of two outstanding Yakima poets.

Doug Johnson, 14 lines and 3 Strikes, and Keely Murphy, This Steady Place, will be giving a free public reading Tuesday, December 20th at 8pm, hosted by Inklings Bookshop.

This is the first extended chance Yakima will have to hear the work of these incredible writers. (scroll down for early reviews of their work, along with pictures of the authors and their books)

Come spend a cold winter evening with the warmth of the spoken word shared among friends and help Blue Begonia celebrate the accomplishments of these gifted poets.
