Jawsfest Poetry/NA Flute - Today

 ,   Add to calendar
 Martha's Vineyard  See map

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.

Woohoo, come down to New Smyrna Beach to see ALL the sharks you could ever want to see. in one spot alone, a fishing captain said there were over a million sharks in the area.

And congratulations to my big brother Lee McCormack on becoming the first Poet Laureate of Martha's Vineyard!

Thanks Carol - kind of a cool connection of all the sharks at New Smyrna Beach and Lee being your brother - makes you wonder. Blessings, ww
