For most of us, life is jam-packed. In the 21st century it becomes even more important to take a break at the end of the work day, put aside our digital devices and reconnect with other people and the natural world. This talk explores how we can all benefit from a garden created for the senses. Whether you sit in such a space with a cup of coffee in the morning, an iced tea in the afternoon, or a cocktail at the end of the day, The Cocktail Hour Garden will be a refuge where you can relax, recharge, and reconnect with other people and the natural world.

Join us for a fascinating presentation by acclaimed local author William J. Mann, at Wellfleet Preservation Hall, as he discusses his latest book.

William J. Mann is an author and historian whose most recent book, The Wars of the Roosevelts: The Ruthless Rise of America’s Greatest Political Family (Harper- Collins) chronicles a heretofore unknown chapter in that fabled family’s past. His book Tinseltown: Murder, Morphine and Madness at the Dawn of Hollywood won the 2014 Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime and is being developed as a television series for FX. Mann’s other books include the New York Times Notable Book Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn, called “definitive” by the Sunday Times of London. He is an Associate Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University, and divides his time between New York and Provincetown.

Join us for our 2nd annual Steamroller Print Extravaganza! Watch as giant prints (and other sizes) are created by using a steamroller from “Dirtworks” as the press, and the drive- way as a press bed. Create your own prints and bring them with you to have them pressed on site; we’ll provide ink, brayers, paper, and industrial equipment. Plus! Kids can carve their very own potato prints to take home.
