Peanut Butter Club


What's next at Peanut Butter Club...

Presents part one of the video “The Gilded Age” on Friday, March 9, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Meet the titans and barons of the glittering late 19th century, whose materialistic extravagance contrasted harshly with the poverty of the struggling workers who challenged them. The vast disparities between them sparked debates still raging today. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

About Peanut Butter Club

A WHOI community activity
Each Friday at noon in Redfield Auditorium, WHOI sponsors a free talk or video on a topical subject. Peanut Butter Club presentations are a chance to relax, chat with friends, and learn about a wide range of socially relevant subjects -- including but not limited to oceanographic information. Past Peanut Butter Club talks have covered topics like opera, research on the sun, Falmouth water quality, and the history of thermometers. Video presentations feature films on world history, travel, gardening, and nature. Many summertime presentations relate to the ocean.

Bring a lunch and join us. Coffee, tea, and cookies are served. Peanut Butter Club is a free community service sponsored by WHOI, made possible each week, in part, by a dedicated group of volunteers. Donations are accepted.

If you have an interesting project, traveled to an exotic place, have a musical group, written a book, etc., and you would like to share this with members of the community, the WHOI Information Office welcomes presentors to give talks at Peanut Butter Club.  If you are interested, please contact Joanne Tromp at or call (508) 289-2252 for more information.
