Mary Oliver: The Provincetown Connection

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 6:30pm
Provincetown, MA beach

Please join Anne Parsons Marchant for Mary Oliver: The Provincetown Connection. This 1.5-2.0 hour virtual workshop will explore the poetry of Mary Oliver within the context of Mary’s beloved outer Cape Cod. We will virtually “visit” Provincetown MA which Mary called home for 50 years. We will use pictures and videos to “see” the homes in which Mary lived – all a stone’s throw from each other, and view for ourselves the beauty of the Blackwater Pond area in the Provincelands. Whether you are a brand new or long-standing fan, you are invited to join this in-depth exploration of the life and work of an American treasure.

Anne Parsons Marchant has long loved words!  A member of the Transformative Language Arts Network, she loves storytelling and transformation of all kinds.  Mary Oliver is her favorite poet.

The Scarborough Public Library and The Friends of Scarborough Marsh have collaborated to host a virtual lecture by Zachary Whitener, Research Associate at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) in Portland. 

Zach’s research focuses primarily on fish populations, including age, growth, and stock structure. Zach received his BA in Anthropology from Brown University, where his studies focused on marine resource management. He later went on to receive his MS in Marine and Environmental Sciences from the University of the Virgin Islands. Outside of GMRI, Zach is a Registered Maine Guide and US Coast Guard licensed captain who owns and operates his own company, Anadromous Adventures Guide Service LLC, specializing in fly fishing for striped bass in Casco Bay. He has a passion for fishing, cooking, and (if he’s lucky) cooking fish.
