Inside The Pages: Robert Finch & Rick Cochran

Sunday, July 17th, 2016 7:30 pm
$10.00
BUY TICKETS HERE Tonight's Inside The Pages is a special local authors edition! Featuring Robert Finch, author of the brand new collection of essays Cape Cod Notebook II and Rick Cochran, author of Wellfleet Tales and the forthcoming Wellfleet Tales II - Confessions of a Wash-Ashore. Like a lot of Cape Codders, Wellfleet's own Robert Finch is a man who wears many hats, always with great élan. He's a writer, naturalist, radio personality, musician, conservationist and one of the best joke tellers in town and, in this town, that's saying something. But Robert is first and foremost one of America's premier nature writers, the author of seven collections of essays, as well as the co-editor of The Norton Book of Nature Writing. His new book of radio essays, A Cape Cod Notebook II, drawn from his Edward R. Murrow Award winning series for NPR member station WCAI, is a brilliant sequel to one of our all time bestselling titles.  As one might expect, this new volume finds Robert musing over encounters with the natural world on land, on the beach and at sea. But we also get to hear his thoughts on an act of kindness at the Social Security Administration offices in Hyannis, the discovery of Richard III's bones in a parking lot, Tony Bennett, Downtown Crossing, a Lionel train set, sacred and secular music and the mental state brought on by the arrival of Spring. Like it's predecessor, this is the kind of book that, theoretically, you can dip into and enjoy a bit at a time, but, really it's more like that old potato chip commerical: bet you can't read just one.   Rick Cochran's first volume of reminiscences, Wellfleet Tales, came out in December of last year and, to date, we've sold over 120 copies, which is pretty remarkable given that we haven't even gotten into the summer season yet. Rick's father was the principal of the Wellfleet High School, back when there still was such a thing and his tales of growing up in Wellfleet in the 1950's are just as appealing to those of us who came here later and have always wondered about what the town was like in those days and to those who were here. Rick's writing is vivid and full of humor and we fully anticipate that volume II will be just as delightful as the first. *Text courtesy of Wellfleet Booksmith

Portnoy recently collaborated with James Franco, Keegan Allen, and a cast of preteen skaters on an omnibus feature, and was commissioned by the Google Creative Collective to create an experimental web series. His music videos have premiered on Vice’s Creator Project, OZY, and Stereogum. His films have found support from the Sloan Science Foundation, the Mary Pickford Foundation, and the Michael Minor and Robert Green Foundation.
