Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB:Presents the PBS video “Survivors of the Firestorm” on Friday, October 17, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole. “Survivors of the Firestorm” follows the phoenix-like story of Victoria's wildlife, the fall and rise of the great mountain ash forests and all that dwell within them, and the extraordinary capacity of a damaged natural world to bounce back. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: The library will welcome Vineyard authors Thomas Dresser, Herb Foster, and Jay Schofield on Wednesday, October 15, to talk about their new book “Martha’s Vineyard in World War II,” which was just released this year. It is illustrated with photographs gleaned from the archives of several national repositories as well as from local newspapers and magazines and private collections, including photographs by the authors. The book’s scope is broad, giving background information on both the island and the nation, and about towns and individuals. It describes daily life on the home front, as people faced the wartime demands of defense and rationing, as well as the life and duties of those who enlisted in the different services. The text depends in large part on “Vineyard Voices,” the oral history project of Linsey Lee of the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. The authors will place special emphasis on the Woods Hole/Falmouth connection. The presentation will begin at 7:15 p.m., in the meeting room in the lower level of the library, which is handicapped accessible. Following their talk there will be time for questions. Copies of the book will be for sale. 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. 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.
