ROGER PAYNE AND LISA HARROW

Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.—On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the Norman Williams Public Library will hold a program entitled “SeaChange: Reversing the Tide” with Roger Payne and Lisa Harrow.

Should everything dance to humanity’s tune, or does such a self-important view lead to the destruction on earth? This question is addressed by the performance piece “SeaChange: Reversing the Tide.” By combining the knowledge of science with the wisdom of poetry, Roger Payne, the well-known environmentalist credited with discovering the songs of humpback whales, and Lisa Harrow, accomplished actress (and Roger’s spouse), argue compellingly that man is not the overseer of life but an integral part of life’s complex web, and that our survival requires that we attend not just to our own wellbeing, but also to the wellbeing of the entire web of life.

See the compelling program at Norman Williams Public Library, 10 the Green, Woodstock. For more info, call 802-457-2295.
