      "Outer Cape Lit,” with Rhoda Flaxman

       5-7 p.m.Thursdays at the Big Room,Wellfleet Library   (alternate location TBA on April 25)

      April 11, 18, 25 and May 2

      Our Outer Cape landscape has been the inspiration for many excellent writers from our earliest history to the present. For our first exploration of this theme, we’ll read contemporary writers who both live on and write about the Outer Cape. Sampling works in four genres, we will read and discuss: Annie Dillard’s novel, “The Maytrees;” Sinan Unel’s screenplay, “Race Point;” poetry by Mary Oliver and Marge Piercy; and selected essays by Robert Finch and others.

       Professor Flaxman retired (2007) from teaching Victorian literature and art history, and directing Brown University ’s writing-across-the curriculum program at Brown University for twenty years. Since then she has established an educational consulting firm (WriteConsulting) , and teaches community seminars in literature in Providence and Wellfleet.
