Writer John Whelan and photographer Kim Roderiques will share stories on how they drove the length and breadth of Cape Cod to all of its 15 towns, from Provincetown to Sandwich, to interview and photograph the 139 individuals that appear in their book, I Am of Cape Cod: People and Their Stories. Their presentation will take place at the Atwood House & Museum on Sunday, Feb. 18, from 2-3:30 p.m. The selection of their subjects collectively represents a cross section of Cape Codders —every type, size, shape, age, and lifestyle. Here are the fishermen, artists, politicians, scientists, farmers, entrepreneurs, environmental activists, writers, and others who give the Cape its particular character and spirit. Each shares a personal and moving story about what living on the Cape means to them.
The Atwood House & Museum is located at 347 Stage Harbor Rd., Chatham. Admission is $5 for non-members; free for members. For details, visit www.chathamhistoricalsociety.org.
