Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: December 15

Presents award winning author Terri Arthur who will present a pictorial presentation on her popular award-winning historical novel “Fatal Decision: Edith Cavell WWI Nurse,”on Friday, December 15, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Based on fact, Arthur’s richly written historical novel tells the powerfully moving story of the legendary Edith Cavell, a British nurse who started the first nurses’ training school in Belgium. When World War I broke out and the German army occupied Belgium, Edith’s world disintegrated. Using her nursing as a cover, she became a key link in the dangerous and clandestine world of the Belgian underground rescuing wounded Allied soldiers. For nine months she was relentlessly pursued by the ruthless German army. She changed the history of America and Europe with her role in this war. This is a piece of history that hasn’t been told – until now. It is an inspiring story about a woman you never knew, but will never forget. Books will be available for purchase after the talk. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: December 22

There will be no Peanut Butter Club presentation on December 22.

THE SOLSTICE SINGERS

Will celebrate their 25th anniversary with “Solstice Light,” a vibrant performance featuring choral pieces ranging from the ethereal O Magnum Mysterium (by Tomàs Luis de Victoria) to familiar carols, wassailing songs, and the Boar’s Head Carol. A daring sword dance, a mummers’ play, and an elegant English country dance will enliven the show, which takes place in the historic Woods Hole Community Hall, 68 Water Street, Woods Hole, on Dec. 16 & 17 at 4 p.m. The Solstice Singers will be joined by members of the early music group Ensemble Passacaglia, playing period instruments including recorder, viola da gamba, and percussion. The show also features the children’s chorus Les Enfants du Soleil, singing seasonal favorites and raising their sweet voices to wish you all the best in this season of returning light. The hall is accessible to people with disabilities. Advance tickets are available at Eight Cousins Bookstore in Falmouth or online at http://mktix.com/tss. Admission is $20 at the door, $17 in advance; $12 students; $1 children under 12. For more information, visit www.solsticesingers.org.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Week of December 11

The library is beginning a new season of “Knitting at the Library.” This event takes place twice a month, on the first and third Thursdays, from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m., throughout the winter. Rather than a class, this is a group of people who like to knit. However, all skill levels are welcome. People will be happy to interrupt their own projects to coach others. It is a nurturing environment, in the time-honored manner of neighborliness and encouragement. New participants are welcome to stop in and “try it out.” The library winter film series is swinging into high gear. The next in the series will be the new feature film based on the autobiography of Jeanette Walls called “The Glass Castle.” The book was #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List for weeks; the film promises to be a winner too. It traces the tumultuous life of a family through the 1960s and into the 1970s, with a brilliant, charismatic, and drunken father, and a mother more dedicated to her art than her family. The children survive through the early nomadic days of life in the Southwest, and struggle as the family falls deeper into poverty, eventually moving back with the father’s poor family in a West Virginia mining town. The movie stars Woody Harrelson, Brie Larson, and Naomi Watts. In response to local patrons’ requests, the library will be showing this film twice, first on Monday, December 11, at 7 p.m., then later in the week, on Wednesday, December 13, at 1 p.m. The film will last approximately two hours and, as always, will be free and open to the public. It will be shown in the lower level meeting room, which is easily accessible through the library’s lower entrance, to the right of the main entrance. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit the website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.
