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. Come hear Joe read from this exciting new novel, followed by a Q & A with the audience.

The Little Folk Show featuring Catie Flynn & Annie Lynch

Sunday, August 7th, 2016 7:30 pm
$15.00, with Ashley Bilodeau
BUY TICKETS HERE Catie Flynn is a singer songwriter born and raised on Cape Cod, and winner of the 2010 “Cape Cod Songwriters Competition. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where she studied voice and music business. Upon graduating from Berklee Catie moved to Nashville Tennessee. While in Nashville Catie toured with her Americana group The Fireman’s Daughter. The Fireman’s Daughter released an EP entitled “Road to Tennessee”(available on itunes.) ” Now back on the Cape, Catie can be seen playing locally and around the northeast region both solo and with her new ensemble, The Catie Flynn Band. In 2013, Catie released her solo album entitled “Let Me Down Slow”. Annie Lynch began her love of live music while eavesdropping on the Cape Cod Little Fiddlers’ painstakingly squeaky rehearsal in the gym of her elementary school en route to after-school pickup. This was music to her ears. The sound of their little uneven bows on the cheap instruments might as well have been that of a world-class orchestra. She begged her parents for a violin, a wish they were pleased to grant, and screeched her way through five years of Suzuki lessons until she discovered the music of Joni Mitchell and began to sing. Guitar followed singing, writing followed guitar, and by the time Annie was fourteen, creating and performing songs had seemingly become a vital necessity to her coming of age. Her love of bowed instruments would continue though, thankfully, her violin has not since been publicly unearthed. In the mid-2000’s Annie joined musical forces with other Berklee grads to form Annie & The Beekeepers. The band went on to record an EP followed by a full-length album in 2013, and have toured extensively across the USA, sharing stages with many notable current artists. Local artist Ashley Bilodeau opens! Tonight, these two longtime Cape Cod friends will “Take it back to where it all started many years ago on the Cape, with two dear friends and a lifelong musical sisterhood.” – Annie Lynch

Inside The Pages: Lauren Wolk

Thursday, August 18th, 2016 7:30 pm
$10.00
BUY TICKETS HERE 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

No doubt they will be blowing the roof off of the Hall yet again. Mark your calendars and get your tickets now before they're gone! For more than 20 years, diva Julia Nixon was a fixture on the Washington, D.C. music scene and beyond. "Julia & Company" was the resident group at the popular Mr. Henry's nightclub. Her tremendous vocal power has inspired comparisons with such artists as Aretha Franklin, and Tina Turner, and earned her the lead role in the Broadway production "Dreamgirls", replacing Jennifer Holliday. Julia, with her impressive four and a half octave range, idolized Leontyne Price, as a young girl. This early inspiration led to Julia studying opera for seven years. Whether an intimate audience at Washington's well renowned Blues Alley, or 6'000 at New York's celebrated Radio City Music Hall, Julia's artistry consistently garners praise. Julia has toured Japan, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Russia and various countries in Africa. She has toured worldwide with the likes of with Richard Pryor and Donald Byrd & The Blackbyrds; she has opened for Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Vince Gill, Kenny G, Tina Turner and Herbie Hancock; and she has performed at the White House, The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall and Carnegie Hall. Her No. 1 dance hit in the United Kingdom (“Breakin’ Down”), which was co-written with longtime partner David Ylvisaker, also helped her international appeal. Her independent release, “Keepin’ on Track,” was nominated for a Grammy in the category of best pop female vocalist.  Julia has performed to sold-out audiences at Prez Hall since 2012 and is one of our favorite returning artists. Don't miss this opportunity to enjoy world-class talent in our beautiful and intimate venue!

Inside The Pages: Mac Gatch & Tracey Lind

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 7:30 pm
$10.00
Mac Gatch, a summer resident of Wellfleet since the 1960s, has recently published a history of his family Till the Break of Day: Philip Gatch and Some Descendants Through Three Centuries - from about 1720 in Maryland to 1960 in Ohio.  His ancestors were among the first converts to Methodism, whose anti-slavery convictions brought them to move from Virginia to Milford, Ohio, in 1798. In Ohio they were farmers, participants in civic life, pillars of the Methodist church, and (increasingly) earned their living as businesspeople in Cincinnati. By 1960, the farms had been embraced by urban growth, and Mac had returned to the Episcopal Church, which his great-great-great grandfather had left for the more enthusiastic Methodism two centuries earlier. Mac (more formally Milton McC. Gatch), was Academic Dean and Provost at Union Theological Seminary in New York, and also served for many years a  priest-in-charge of the seasonal Chapel of St. James the Fisherman in Wellfleet. He will talk about his book with a longtime friend—now one of his successors at the chapel—Tracey Lind, who in her off-Cape life is dean of the Episcopal Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland.
