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.
