At The Atwood Lecture Series
Grandes Dames of the Dunes
Speaker: The Dune Tramp
The next lecture in our At the Atwood Sunday lectures will be Grandes Dames of the Dunes, presented by The Dune Tramp.

The Dune Tramp is a part-time resident of Eastham, artist, photographer, writer, historian, lecturer, preservationist . . . and now radio personality.

Enjoy a lively narrative and extensive slideshow in the hour presentation. The Dune Tramp, an engaging writer and photographer, has captured the beauty and mystery of the outer Caper Cod dune shacks, past and present, in his previous shows. Research for these lectures revealed a fascinating matriarchical dune society, going back decades.

A variety of these strong, courageous Grande Dames of the Dunes are discussed, along with a brief history of the shacks . . . and an anecdote or two. It's an entertaining & informative presentation for all ages.
