Falmouth Academy will host naturalist Robert Finch who will speak on “Encountering Wildlife” to a live audience on Tuesday, November 2, at 7 PM at the Simon Center’s Hermann Theater. The talk is part of the school’s continuing community series.

Mr. Finch has lived on Cape Cod since 1971 and is regarded as one of America’s leading nature writers. He has published seven books of essays and is co-editor of “The Norton Book of Nature Writing.” His most recent book is “A Cape Cod Notebook II,” the second collection of his weekly public radio commentaries, which have been broadcast since 2005 on CAI, the Woods Hole NPR affiliate of GBH. His essays have appeared in numerous magazines and journals and his books have been translated into Japanese and Chinese.

Mr. Finch has taught at numerous colleges and writers conferences and was on the nonfiction faculty of the MFA in Writing Program at Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky.

Events in the Falmouth Academy Community Series are free and open to the public. Proof of vaccination and masks are required to attend. Registration is online through the school’s website.
