Winter Birds of Cape Cod

Saturday, January 28th at 1:00 pm
Cape Cod is renowned worldwide for the abundance of birds during the fall season, but many people don’t realize the birding opportunities during the winter months. Vast flocks of winter robins, several species of hawks and owls, and the occasional appearance of winter vagrants make for plentiful birding opportunities on the Cape in the winter. Join Ian Ives, Director of Mass Audubon’s Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary for a glimpse into the winter birds of Cape Cod, and learn about the many amazing survival adaptations that they employ to stay warm and find food.

New Local Author Chip Bishop

Friday, January 20th at 11:00 am

New author and Mashpee resident Chip Bishop meets with our audience. His book The Lion and the Journalist: The Unlikely Friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and Joseph Bucklin Bishop explores the relationship between Theodore Roosevelt and Chip’s great granduncle Joseph Bucklin Bishop, who was a newspaper editor and the president’s authorized biographer. Chip says his goal “was to draw a rich portrait of the exceptional lives of two great men…The book emerges as a remarkable tale of power, politics and presidential courage.”

Pulitzer Prize winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin writes, “Chip Bishop identifies one of the central keys to T.R.’s success, his unparalleled ability to forge warm relationships with the press, even then they challenged and criticized him.”

Books will be available for sale and signing.
