The Ocracoke Library will present “Sanctuary Reflections in Story & Song” by Vermont thespians Diana Bigelow and Jim Stapleton at 7 p.m. Friday, March 3.

Last year, the husband and wife team performed Mark Twain’s “Diaries of Adam & Eve” at the library.library sign

In the 1980s, Jim was resident naturalist at the John Burroughs Sanctuary in West Park, N.Y. While there, he picked up a lot of lore about the natural history of the place and organized these observations into an almanac of stories and meditations.

The evening’s program will feature selections from these writings as well as Diana’s songs, which, though written a decade later on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, share with the stories a reverence and resonance with the natural world.

The program is free to the public and will last about an hour.
