Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon

Then, a woman is raped and finds a path toward healing by examining the objects associated with her trauma. We talk with Laura Levitt about her memoir, “The Objects That Remain.”

North Fork Works with Hazel Kahan
This month’s guest is Kim Tetrault, an expert not only on the “spat,” which is what baby oysters are called after they have spawned but also the head of the SPAT program at the Suffolk Project in Aquaculture Training at Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Marine Education Learning Center in Southold, his brainchild twenty years ago and still his responsibility today. Under his tutelage, local residents learn to cultivate their own oysters at their own or Cornell’s waterfront properties, enjoying the taste of homegrown oysters and, since oysters and other bivalves naturally filter water of impurities, becoming in the process oyster farmers who help restore water quality to the region’s water bodies. Kim Tetrault is also a bass player and master of many other building skills who will connect for us the little known dynamic that links oysters, jazz giants and the North Fork.
