Pelikan exhibits at Audubon Society

The Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Joppa Flats Education Center will feature a new exhibit of nature illustrations by award-winning local artist Judy Pelikan over the next few weeks.

“The Music of the Natural World” will hang in the Juliet Kellogg French Room now through Dec. 30. A portion of all purchases made during the exhibit helps to support Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats.

Pelikan finds inspiration in nature and uses photographs, as well as her own observations to depict birds, feathers, nests and other fauna and flora found in New England habitats, all with a unique interpretation. The display features paintings of migrant and native New England birds and animals.

Book discussion Monday

Author Terry Farish will visit Main Street Congregational Church in Amesbury on Monday for a book discussion. A writer of books for children and young adults, Farish will discuss her newest book, “The Good Braider.”

A young adult novel set in South Sudan and Portland, Maine, the story follows a teenage girl’s “experience of war, dreams, and the African art of braiding hair.”

The Portsmouth, N.H.. resident will speak from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Parish House at the church, 145 Main St.

This haunting novel is not only a riveting story of escape and survival, but the universal tale of a young immigrant’s struggle to build a life on the cusp of two cultures.

Kenyan discussion Tuesday

The YWCA of Greater Newburyport and American Association of University Women will present a free program, “An American Experience In Kenya: Volunteering at an Orphanage,” on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The lecture by Beverly’s Carole Rein will occur at the YWCA branch at 13 1/2 Pond St., Newburyport, behind CVS. Refreshments will be served.
