Peanut Butter Club
What's next at Peanut Butter Club...Presents the video “The Island Murder” on Friday, September 14, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. In the summer 1931, Honolulu's tropical tranquility was shattered when a young Navy wife made a drastic allegation of rape against five nonwhite islanders. What unfolded in the following days and weeks was a racially-charged murder case that would make headlines across the nation, enrage Hawai'i's native population, and galvanize the island's law enforcers and the nation's social elite. Sponsored by the WHOI Visitor Center. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.
About Peanut Butter ClubA 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.
