Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: There will be no Peanut Butter Club presentation today.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY:
Author Jamie Cat Callan will host a creative writing workshop at the library on Saturday, October 25, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. Ms. Callan has published eight books and is the creator of The Writers Toolbox: Creative Games and Exercises for Inspiring the “Write” Side. Ms. Callan will introduce participants to techniques for accessing their most creative selves, how to find their own inner muse, and how to jump-start their prose. Callan has taught writing for over thirty years in a variety of venues, including Yale University (where she was a teaching fellow), New York University, UCLA, Wesleyan University, and Fairfield University.  She has also brought her improvisational writing games to prisons, psychiatric hospitals, senior centers, public and private schools, and to our very own Falmouth Community (Night) Schools.  This workshop costs $35.  We can only accommodate thirty participants, so it’s important to purchase tickets beforehand, either at the library or Eight Cousins Bookstore. Please leave your email address or phone number, so you can receive the writing assignment. Twenty five percent of the proceeds will be donated to the library. On Saturday, October 25, at 7:30 p.m., the library will host the Aujourd’hui Ensemble as part of its “Listening at the Library” fundraising concert series.  Their classical music program will include selections from J. S. Bach, Jean-Baptiste Loelliet, Enrique Granados, Giovanni Pergolesi, and Roger Quilter. As the Ensemble features two sopranos, piano, continuo, an oboe, a bassoon, and a flute, the concert promises to be rich and varied, with musical offerings composed from the Baroque period to the mid-twentieth century. Tickets for concert are $20/$10 (for students) and may be purchased at the Bank of Woods Hole, Eight Cousins, the library and at the door. The door opens at 7:00 p.m., for the 7:30 p.m. concert, which will be held upstairs in the library. For more information, please call the library at (508) 548-8961 or check our website at www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.
 
THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS):
Presents “Lauren Sheehan” on Sunday, October 26. Dubbed a "one-woman Americana jukebox" by Huffington Post, she sings and plays in the tradition of Elizabeth Cotton and Mississippi 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 at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic or by calling (508) 540-0320.

WHOI OCEAN SCIENCE EXHIBIT CENTER & GIFTSHOP:The center, located at 15 School Street, Woods Hole, is open Monday – Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For more information, call (508) 289-2663. For WHOI merchandise, visit our online store at www.whoi.edu/whoistore.

Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: Presents the PBS video “Why Planes Vanish” on Friday, October 31, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole. Can new technology prevent aircraft like Flight MH370 from disappearing without a trace?  This program features Dave Gallo of WHOI. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY:
The library will be presenting an afternoon of acorn crafts for kids of all ages on Saturday, November 1, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Librarians Margaret McCormick and Kelly Porter, who delight in working with children, will lead the event. Crafts covering a range of abilities and skills will be demonstrated and the children will be led through the construction, step by step, as they wish. All children are welcome to attend with their parents. They are welcome to bring acorns with them, though there will be plenty on hand. Story Hour for Grownups returns on Sunday, November 2, at 3:00 p.m., with its traditional Halloween opener of mildly ghoulish fare. Offerings might induce a bit of seat squirming but should not interfere with a good night’s sleep! Ever popular Frank Child has selected Roald Dahl’s classic, “The Landlady,” for his reading. Young Billy Weaver, sent to Bath from London on a business trip, decides to try an attractive bed and breakfast for his night’s lodgings instead of the Bell and Dragon, recommended by the porter at the train station. It proves to be a poor decision. Nancy Porter, who closed last season’s readings with one of her original stories, will again read from her own work. “My Second Career” is about a woman who describes herself as “too old to be of interest and too young to be cared for.” Without benefit of a magic cloak, she nevertheless manages to be sufficiently invisible that she is perfect for her new job. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call the library at (508) 548-8961 or check our website at www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.
 
THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS):
Presents “Garnet Rogers” on Sunday, November 9. In a long professional career begun in early childhood, Canadian singer-songwriter Garnet Rogers has established himself as one of the most influential performers in North America. Hailed by the Globe as a "charismatic performer and singer," his commanding physical presence, "smooth, dark baritone" (Washington Post), remarkable range and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing combine to make him one of the finest singers anywhere. His music is literate, passionate, sensitive, and deeply purposeful; his songs "give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart" (Kitchener Waterloo Record). A dedicated optimist, Garnet sings about hidden heroes and hails the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his quick wit and over-the-top humor can move audiences from tears to laughter and back again. We're thrilled to have this superb performer back for his seventh visit. Come early for a good seat! 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 at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic or by calling (508) 540-0320.
