Join us for an author event celebrating the publication of The Other Jersey Shore: Life on the Delaware River.

This book takes readers on a tour of the NJ portion of the Delaware and its surroundings. Audience members will learn about the role that the river played in the Revolution, wildlife which lives in and around it, little known archeological sites and the ecological history of the river which has gone from one of the dirtiest in the nation to one of the cleanest. Wonderful stories of our state told by one of our most celebrated local storytellers. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
