Lee H. McCormack, the first Martha's Vineyard Poet Laureate in island history, will be reading his original poem to help save sharks and oceanic ecosystems. Lee's reading will take place before an anticipated audience of over 5,000 people at Ocean Park on film night of "Jaws." Wendy Benchley, Peter Benchley's widow, will also be speaking on the stage just before the movie. There will be two huge movie screens to view the movie, this event has ticketed seating for spots up close to the screens - otherwise - many great places to watch on the park lawn for FREE!
William Waterway will open the event with a Native American Flute song entitled: "400 Million Years" to honor how long sharks have lived on Earth. William will be accompanied by Stephen Hart with Native American drum.
