    John Waters Book Signing

    Thursday June 16, 2022 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at MAP

    Pop culture icon, New York Times best-selling author, and renowned filmmaker John Waters will be signing copies of his first novel LIARMOUTH: A FEEL-BAD ROMANCE. Marsha Sprinkle: Suitcase thief. Scammer. Master of disguise. Dogs and children hate her. Her own family wants her dead. She’s smart, she’s desperate, she’s disturbed, and she’s on the run with a big chip on her shoulder. They call her “Liarmouth”—until one insane man makes her tell the truth.

    TEDx Provincetown

    June 17, 2022 at 7:00pm at The Provincetown Marina at Ryder Street Wharf

    TEDx Provincetown: HyperLocal seeks to highlight innovation in local food systems, energy solutions, waste management, government, non-profits, education, art, film, and more! The global pandemic and civil unrest are among the factors that have led to a wider awareness of the fragility of supply chains and other systems critical to civilization as we currently know it. As globalization and some of the issues that come with it accelerate, how can we look inward to our own communities for unique, sustainable solutions?
