Woods Hole, MA – The MBL Falmouth Forum originally scheduled for February 14, 2014 has been cancelled. The event will be rescheduled on a date to be determined.
Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Dunn was scheduled to speak at 7:30 PM in the MBL’s Lillie Auditorium, but had to cancel his poetry reading due to inclement weather conditions along the East Coast.
Sponsored by the MBL Associates, the Falmouth Forum series is free and open to the public. This MBL Falmouth Forum series is also supported by a generous donation from the Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod.
The 2013-2014 MBL Falmouth Forum includes these presentations. Visit mbl.edu/falmouth-forum for detailed information.
