Infinite Light Center: Fall Equinox Celebration
Category: Festivals & special events
Sunday at 1 PM EDT – 3 PM EDT
Join us as we gather to celebrate & welcome the Fall season!
Shorter, cooler days. Pumpkins, bonfires, and hot cider. Vibrant, colorful leaves dropping from the trees… A time of letting go (just like the trees), in order to create space, and trusting that something better is coming.
Let’s celebrate this wonderful, magical time together, through:
Guided Meditation, Channeling and Light Language!

Union Ave Books and Autumn House Press: Hallelujah Station
Hallelujah Station by M. Randal O'Wain w/ Adam O'Fallon Price
Sunday at 2 PM EDT
Union Ave Books welcomes M. Randal O'Wain to present his collection of stories HALLELUJAH STATION. M. Randal will be joined in conversation by Adam O'Fallon Price, author of the recent book HOTEL NEVERSINK. This free virtual event takes place on September 20th @ 2pm (Eastern) on Zoom, send an RSVP to RSVP@unionavebooks.com to attend. Please include the the title of the book HALLELUJAH STATION in the subject line. We will send the zoom link the day of the event.
Pre-order HALLELUJAH STATION here: https://unionavebooks.indielite.org/book/9781938769597
M. Randal O’Wain’s debut short story collection, Hallelujah Station and Other Stories, introduces readers to a wide and diverse cast of characters struggling with and responding to changes and loss. These gritty and poignant stories follow the tragic parts of life, the pieces that may neither start nor end in comfortable resolution and the pieces that make up complex realities. In the first story, a former drug dealer reflects on a life-changing decision he made years ago that ended up hurting the person he most wanted to protect. Later in the collection, we meet a would-be robber who turns out, in strange ways, to be the hero. O’Wain’s characters are often deeply flawed or totally lost, but in each instance, these traits serve to reveal the characters as real, compassionate, and, ultimately, human. Sprinkled with humor and heartache, O’Wain’s stories bring us into contact with the curious, the tragic, and the authentic.
Jubilee Community Arts: Mountain Jubilee with Paul Campbell
Longtime radio host Paul Campbell presents this program of concert highlights and additional releases from artists who perform at the Laurel Theater, a historic, decommissioned church owned and operated by Jubilee Community Arts and located in Knoxville’s Fort Sanders neighborhood.
