writteninwaterJust released from National Geographic! Written in Water: A Message for the Future comprises a collection of essays authored by heroes and leaders in the field of water solutions and innovations—a broad range of people from varied disciplines who have contributed their hearts and minds to bringing awareness to and conserving Earth’s freshwater supply. In their own words, authors tell of such tragedies as water slavery, drought, or Bausman, Kevin Keady, Featherstone Flutes, Katie Mayhew and R. Carlos Nakai and others; film screenings, and a “Green Fair” with booths of local and off-island green businesses and environmental organizations.

A local water panel chaired by Robert Woodruff, with panelists Joe Allosso, Bill Wilcox and others, will provide an update on the “Health of Martha’s Vineyard’s Water”.

The evening of May 2 will close the event with keynote speaker, Alexandra Cousteau, water poetry by Fan Ogilvie, and music by the Minnesingers, Katie Mayhew, and the world renowned Native American flutist, R. Carlos Nakai.

This event is being produced by William Waterway Marks in cooperation with National Geographic, and is a fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Science Fair and ongoing water research by the nonprofit World Waterway. Tickets for the evening of May 2 may now be purchased online at: http://www.ticketsmv.com/event.php?id=14520.
