Summer Cinema by the Sea – Between the Tides

Tuesday, July 16 at 7 p.m.

Marine Science Center, 430 Nahant Road, Nahant, Massachusetts 01908

Ed Ricketts was a pioneer of ecology as a scientific discipline, and his book Between Pacific Tides remains the primary reference on west coast marine invertebrates.

“Between The Tides” follows retired marine biologist Bud Laurent on a quest to reconnect with some old friends, naturalists whose lives embody the sense of wonder and free spirited curiosity that made Ricketts a great scientist and “The Renaissance Man of Cannery Row.”

This event will be co-hosted by Northeastern’s Humanities Center. The screening of “Between the Tides” will be followed by a discussion of Steinbeck’s legacy on Cannery Row led by Erika Koss, Assistant Dean in NU’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities and former Program Director at the National Steinbeck Center.
