The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present Wellfleet author Robert Finch reading from his second collection of essays; A Cape Cod Notebook 2 Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 1pm.
Listeners to Robert Finch’s highly popular weekly broadcast, “A Cape Cod Notebook”, for which he has twice won the prestigious Edward R. Murrow award for Radio Writing, will delight in this second collection of his radio scripts. Originally read by the author on WCAI, Finch brings his unique style and voice to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History for a reading and book signing.
Mr. Finch is known for capturing the essence of life, both human and natural, on Cape Cod. Whether contemplating the significance of Cape Cod’s first-ever recorded bear sighting, exploring the possibility that whales may consciously perform for whale-watchers, or visiting a rare stand of chestnut trees, Finch’s singularly unique perceptions constantly remind us of the special character of the place that we are so fortunate to live, Cape Cod and the Islands. In addition to an essay for every week of the year, this new collection demonstrates Finch’s equally strong interest in human nature, containing a number of portraits of Cape Codders, new and old.
Robert Finch, widely regarded as one of America’s leading nature writers, is the author of nine books of essays and has been broadcasting “A Cape Cod Notebook , since 2005 and has co-edited The Norton Book of Nature Writing.
