"Celebrating the Jersey Shore" with Author Margaret Buchholz

Wednesday, September 17th at 7pm in the Community Meeting room of the Main LIbrary. 

Travel with author Margaret Buchholz as she narrates the Jersey Shore experience over three centuries.  Beginning in 1764 when the shore was still a wild frontier, the author spins stories of sailing and fishing, bathing beauties, violent storms, coastal rescues and wartime hazards.  The landscape may have evolved but the fundamental attractions of the seashore resonate through history.  The program includes photographs and excerpts from the author's three books illustrating the timeless allure of the shore.
