Poetry and wine on the farm while helping the Little Tennessee

Written by 

A poetry reading accompanied by local wines and foods will be held as a fundraiser for the Little Tennessee Watershed Association at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, in Macon County.

Environmental activist Janisse Ray will read from her recently released book of poetry about nature & spirit, A House of Branches. Ray is the author of three books of literary nonfiction, including the acclaimed Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, a memoir about growing up on a junkyard in the ruined longleaf pine ecosystem of the Southeast.

Ray lectures widely on nature, community, agriculture, wildness, sustainability and the politics of wholeness.

The event will be held at Bloemsma Barn in Patton Valley. Cost is $25. www.ltwa.org or 828.369.6402.
