Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: June 15

Presents the video “Secrets of the Shining Knight” on Friday, June 15, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. A knight in shining armor may sound like a character out of a storybook, but once upon a time, knighthood was serious business, and for countless medieval fighters, their armor was what stood between life and death. But what was it really like to live beneath the metal? How was that shining armor crafted, and how strong was it? Could it withstand impacts from the most lethal weapons of the day, including crossbows, muskets, and early guns? NOVA challenged blacksmith Ric Furrer and master armorer Jeff Wasson to recreate parts of an elite armor that was originally manufactured in the Royal Workshop founded by King Henry VIII. We trace their successes and setbacks from start to finish as they rediscover centuries-old metalworking secrets, then put their new armor to the ultimate test against a period musket.Sponsored by the Information Office.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: June 22

Presents Artist Lily Simonson on Friday, June 22, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Lily will present her recent collaborations with WHOI researchers aboard the R/V Atlantis and E/V Nautilus. Her resulting paintings based on deep-sea geochemical seeps and hydrothermal vents comprise her newest exhibition, Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep, which opens June 30, at the Harvard Museum of Natural History.Lily works in tandem with researchers at remote field sites to create larger-than-life paintings of uncanny organisms in extreme environments–from the deep sea to Antarctica. Enveloping viewers in dramatic, atmospheric scenes, Simonson's work evokes the immersive experience of exploration. Simonson has served as the resident artist aboard five different oceanographic expeditions and spent three months scuba diving and camping in Antarctica as the 2014-15 National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers Awardee. Simonson holds a BA from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Painting from UCLA. Her works have been exhibited across the US and Europe and her art has appeared in a range of media outlets, including Interview MagazineAtlas ObscuaraPacific Standard, the LA Times, and LA Weekly.

In each case, copies of the book will be available at the library and also at Eight Cousins Books, for those who wish to own their own copy. The books are all recent releases. At the first discussion on June 27, participants will be discussing The Color of Law, a Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein. On July 11, participants will be discussing Backlash: What Happens When We Talk Honestly About Racism in America, by George Yancy.
