Widely regarded as one of America's leading nature writers, Robert Finch has lived on Cape Cod since 1971. His most recent book, A Cape Cod Notebook, is a collection of his weekly radio commentaries that have been broadcast for the past six years on WCAI, the Woods Hole NPR affiliate of WGBH, and for which he received the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for Radio Writing in 2005.

This program is 1 hour, free, and takes place at the Salt Pond Visitor Center, Eastham. Books will be available for sale, and Mr. Finch will remain after the program for signing.
