Autumn is upon us and with it comes thoughts of cooler temperatures, colorful fall leaves, shorter days, Ocktoberfest, Halloween, and pumpkin everything! In the northwest, the fall is a wonderful time to hit the hiking trail, go for a bike ride, and relish every moment of sunshine before the rains set in. It is a time to bake cookies, pull out your comfy sweaters, fix a cup of tea, and enjoy a good book. Autumn also brings to mind the harvest…a period of time when we gather in crops and prepare for winter. To find out more about harvest events in the Mid-Willamette Valley, have a look at the Travel Oregon site.
In honor of the harvest, we’re highlighting some harvest-related books on our WU Reads Reading Guide. Check it out!
