Lawrence Millman is returning to the library on Tuesday, November 29 to give a talk about his most recent book at 4 p.m., followed by a mushroom walk the next afternoon from 1-3 p.m. Larry is a nature writer, poet, arctic explorer, and mycologist. He has taught at Tufts University, the University of Iceland, University of Minnesota, Vermont College, and Harvard University (Extension). He is the author of sixteen books, including At the End of the World and Fungipedia. He has received a Guggenheim Award, Fulbright Fellowship, and Bush Foundation Fellowship. He has published in many popular journals including National Geographic, the Atlantic Monthly, Smithsonian, Sports Illustrated, Outside, the Times Literary Supplement, the Boston Globe, the London Sunday Times, and the Journal of American Folklore. Larry lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and has made frequent visits to Woods Hole to speak about his many books and lead walks in search of fungus. People should call the library at (508) 548-8961 or email to reserve a place on the walk. On Saturday, December 3, the library will begin its annual Holiday Book Sale, with an assortment of gift-worthy books, games, videos, and CDs filling the library’s lower-level book sale room. The book sale will be open on the first day of the sale from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. After that, the sale will continue during regular library hours. As always, the books are priced very reasonably, making gift-giving reasonable and sustainable. Also on December 3, the book sale will expand down the street for one day only, as the library again joins forces with its friends at Water Street Kitchen for “Books & Bubbles.” This fun and festive extension of the holiday book sale features a more relaxed time for holiday shopping, offering even more amazing gift-worthy books for browsing, along with delicious bubbly drinks and festive snacks. All are welcome to this event at Water Street Kitchen for Books & Bubbles between 12-3:00 p.m.! For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit the website It’s that time again! Once again, our extremely generous local Woods Hole potters have supplied us with outstanding pieces that are both functional and beautiful. Enter for your chance to win pottery from Ann Newbury, Anne Halpin, Susan Nowogrodzki, and Tessa Morgan. Tickets are on sale at the library for $2 each or 3 for $5. The drawing will be held in mid-December, and all proceeds benefit the library! All the pottery is on view at the library and also on the library’s website
