The Week Ahead: Friday, February 16 through Thursday, February 22, 2018
February 16, 2018
Eclectic is the word that comes immediately to mind when looking over the roster of events coming up in the Week Ahead. Tired of being house-bound by the weather? Head out to the annual 20 Miler Road Road Race as the tough get going through whatever weather February 17th has in store for them. Prefer to stay in where it’s warm? We’ve got a weekend’s worth of West Side Story performances at the High School along with a lineup of films (including a NT production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at the MV Film Center) and a Tuesdays in the Newsroom event to combat cabin fever as February meanders toward March. Or, head over to the Mini Book Sale at the VH Library if you’ve already torn through the stack of books you expected were going to see you through ’til springtime. There are also presentations and workshops touching on writing skills, the contemporary meaning of Judaism, a film analysis class and the weekly tech help sessions at the West Tisbury Library to keep us connected and engaged in the Week Ahead.
