Swirling Currents: Presentation & Book Signing
July 29, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Whales closer to demise; sharks chasing seals chasing fish; turtles stranding; fisheries reeling; shellfish aquaculture expanding; Gulf of Maine heating rapidly and Gulf Stream slowing down — all in the context of dynamic coastal change. Sandy Macfarlane probes the stories behind the headlines in an engaging narrative of personal stories and scientific investigation that entertains as well as informs. Swirling Currents navigates “managing coastal environments and social pressures of today with historical perspectives of the past and the needs of the future.” (Dr. Judith McDowell, Woods Hole Sea Grant Director, Emeritus).
Sandy Macfarlane’s curiosity about all things marine began in youth and continues today. Aided by forty years of hands-on experience in resource evaluation, policy and management, and decades of recreational rowing in her 14-foot Cape Dory, she learned about the biological and physical world around her. In the process, she also gained insight into the social, political, and economic landscape of coastal communities. Swirling Currents is her third book.
Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing by the author.
The event is FREE and open to the public. It will be held at the Center for Coastal Studies, 5 Holway Ave, Provincetown.
