PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: November 20Presents author Paul Clerici who will talk about his book “Boston Marathon History by the Mile” on Friday, November 20, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. An exciting, comprehensive, and unique journey over the beloved 26.2-mile course by an athlete who has proudly donned a bib number and run the race more than 20 times and has also covered it in the media for nearly 30 years. With forewords by Boston Marathon (and Falmouth Road Race) director Dave McGillivray and the first women to finish the Boston Marathon, Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb, this book features a history of the great marathon and separate chapters devoted to each community on the route. It offers something for everyone - historical facts of each town and city along the course; fun and interesting anecdotes from every mile of the race; firsthand helpful descriptions of the course; exclusive and unique runner-perspective photos from every mile, town, and city taken during the race; experienced and useful observations; expert advise by renown running coach Bill Squires on how to run each portion of the course; and much, much more. Whether training for the Boston Marathon as a rookie or a veteran; whether an elite athlete, age-group competitor, back-of-the-pack runner, charity participant; or whether simply a fan of the sport of running, this book truly has it all! Books will be for sale after the talk. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.
PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: November 27There will be no Peanut Butter Club presentation on November 27.
ATLANTIC PUBLIC MEDIA: November 19Will present a public listening event to celebrate the creation of new audio work by students at this fall’s Transom Story Workshop. It will be held on November 19, from 7 – 10 p.m., at the Community Hall, 68 Water Street, in Woods Hole. The event is sponsored by Atlantic Public Media, the local non-profit organization that founded public radio station, WCAI, and created the Peabody Award-winning public media website Transom.org, a showcase and workshop for new public media. Since late September, nine beginning radio students have been learning the craft of telling stories with sound. The students, a mix of Americans at home and abroad, as well as two international students, arrived in Woods Hole from the South, Midwest, West Coast, as well as Alaska, Trinidad, Ireland, India, and France. The stories they’ve produced focus on our local area, and we anticipate some of the people they’ve profiled or talked with will be in the audience. A question and answer period will follow each piece. The listening event will precede a brief graduation ceremony and the public is urged to join us in cheering Transom Story Workshop’s ninth graduating class. Seating is limited. For more information, call (508) 548-5527 ext. 2 or email@example.com or visit www.atlantic.org or www.transom.org.
THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): November 22Presents “Lauren Sheehan” on Sunday, November 22. Dubbed a "one-woman Americana jukebox" by Huffington Post, she sings and plays in the tradition of Elizabeth Cotton and Mississipi John Hurt. With gifted Piedmont-style fingerpicking and nuanced vocals inspired by intensive study with elders, she re-creates the intimacy of a back porch where singing and playing were regular events. A onetime teacher and co-founder of a Waldorf school in Hillsboro, OR, she changed careers in mid-stream to pursue her musical passion: blues, country blues, and mountain music in New England and Appalachia. "I'm particularly interested in the confluence of mountain string bands and black country blues," she says, "how mountain harmonies stretch over blues." With four chart-topping albums and many projects in the works, we're excited to host this talented and sought-after performer, whom Peggy Seeger simply calls: "a keeper." The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, with discounts for members, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available by calling (508) 540-0320 or at
