Join Real Women Make Waves for a private reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres, a one-of-a-kind movie memorabilia auction, and the screening of the movie adaptation of Joan Anderson’s New York Times best-selling memoir, A Year by the Sea, filmed on Cape Cod.

Meet novelist Joan Anderson, writer/director/composer Alexander Janko, actor Karen Allen, producer Laura Goodenow, and others who have helped bring Joan’s book to the big screen. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Cape Cod’s WE CAN, a women’s support organization featured in the film. Seating is limited.

Winner of the 2016 Audience Award at the Vail Film Festival, A Year by the Sea is about Joan (played by winner of the 2016 Vanguard Award, Karen Allen). After 30 years as a wife and mother, an empty nester retreats to Cape Cod rather than follow her relocated husband to Kansas. Intent to rediscover herself, but plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor. Supported by her literary agent and a host of locals, including a sexy fisherman, Joan learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life -- ultimately discovering the balance between self and sacrifice, obligation and desire. (Not rated 114 mins.)
