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

His music videos have premiered on Vice’s Creator Project, OZY, and Stereogum.

Inside The Pages: Joe Flanagan

Friday, August 5th, 2016 7:30 pm
$10.00
Hyannis writer Joe Flanagan's Lesser Evils expertly reimagines 1957 Cape Cod, where the mystifying murder of a local child brings us into a world of intrigue-honed by intricate plotting, sharp dialogue, and original characters-that culminates in a conclusion both surprising and deeply moving. When the first young boy goes missing in Truro, Barnstable Lieutenant Bill Warren is pulled into a morass that promises no happy ending. As his pursuit uncovers the unimaginable, he is led into a world of gambling, drug peddling, corruption, and secret psychiatric experiments. Now he must fight to maintain control of an investigation that more and more people-from the state police to the district attorney to a tenacious Boston reporter-have become seriously interested in. As facts become murkier and the threat rises, Warren struggles to survive in a world where the police can be just as corrupt as the criminals they chase, and where a murder inquiry will ultimately lead to his front door.

Inside The Pages: Lauren Wolk

Thursday, August 18th, 2016 7:30 pm
$10.00
Join us as we welcome our friend and Associate Director of the Yarmouth Cultural Center, Lauren Wolk, for an evening of reading and discussion about her tremendous and highly prasied new novel, Wolf Hollow. Critics are heralding this new work as one of the best of 2016, and some have even called it the new To Kill A Mockingbird. Don't miss a very special event with this very special author! Synopsis: Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her small Pennsylvania town. Until the day new student Betty Glengarry walks into her class. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying seems isolated at first, things quickly escalate, and reclusive World War I veteran Toby becomes a target of her attacks. While others have always seen Toby's strangeness, Annabelle knows only kindness. She will soon need to find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount. Brilliantly crafted, Wolf Hollow is a haunting tale of America at a crossroads and a time when one girl's resilience and strength help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history. "This exquisite debut confronts injustice and doesn't flinch." -People "[A] powerful debut . . . beautifully written." -The Wall Street Journal "Wrenching and true. . . . comparisons to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird will abound. But Wolk gives us her own story-one full of grace and stark, brutal beauty." -The New York Times Book Review

Reggaejazz featuring Stan Strickland
TICKETS TBA Matt Jenson's MIX UP MIX UP is a brand new project, spearheaded by Jenson who is a keyboardist, singer, arranger, song-writer, producer, activist and Associate Professor of piano at Berklee College of Music. Lighting up the connection between roots/dub reggae and soul-jazz, Mix Up Mix Up presents original compositions and creative re-workings of pop, jazz and reggae anthems for the mind, body and spirit.
