WHOI Peanut Butter Club - Aug. 28

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: Presents the video “Braving Iraq” on Friday, August 28, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. In the 1990s, the Mesopotamian Marshes were virtually destroyed by Saddam Hussein, but Azzam Alwash is making an extraordinary effort to return life to the green paradise he remembers from his childhood.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: September 4

Presents the video “Touching the Wild” on Friday, September 4, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Joe Hutto has dedicated seven years of his life to becoming a wild mule deer. Ordinarily, the deer herd would run from any human, but these keenly intelligent animals come to regard this stranger as one of their own. As he crosses the species divide, Hutto taps into a new understanding of these elusive animals. His joy in his new family is infectious. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM:

Is now open for the season Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  For more information, call (508) 548-7270 or visit www.woodsholemuseum.org.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY

Dr. Charles Wyttenbach will give a talk and slide show of his recent trip to the Galapagos Islands at the library on Wednesday, August 19 at 7:30 p.m.  Author B J Atwood-Fukuda will read from her work at the library on Monday, August 10, at 7:30 p.m. B J’s fiction is not easily categorized. While she has written in the traditional narrative mode, language—with its enormous range of resonances—compels her more. In her current work, all the action happens inside the brain via the eyes and ears of a widely-traveled, anxiety-ridden female character whose relentless self-surveillance in the wake of 9/11 makes for a harrowing, sometimes hilarious ride. These events are free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit the website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.

WOODS HOLE THEATER COMPANY (WHTC):

Will perform "The Birds" by Conor McPherson, adapted from a story by Daphne du Maurier, directed by William Kennedy and Ann Stone.  Performances will be held September 10-12, 17-19, and 24-26 at 8:00 p.m., with a matinee 2:00 p.m., on Sunday, September 13, at the Woods Hole Community Hall, 68 Water Street, Woods Hole.  Tickets are $15.00 and are available from Ovation Tix: 
(866) 811-4111 or via the WHTC Website: www.woodsholetheater.org.
