What's next at Peanut Butter Club...

Presents the video “The Perfect Crime” on Friday, September 30, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. The shocking story of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, two wealthy college students who murdered a 14-year-old boy in 1924 to prove they were smart enough to get away with it. Their trial, with famed defense attorney Clarence Darrow and Cook County Prosecutor Robert Crowe debating the death penalty and scores of commentators weighing in from the sidelines, set off a national debate about morality. 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 jtromp@whoi.edu or call (508) 289-2252 for more information.
