Book Signing: Memoir of a Skipjack by Randolph George
Saturday, October 7, 11:00am - 1:00pm
Skipjacks remind us of an age when a robust oyster industry enabled a unique way of life along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. These graceful boats take us back to the waterside hamlets where sturdy folk built and tended the vessels of a fishing industry now nearly faded from view. In 1993 Dr. Randolph George found an aging skipjack named Martha Lewis, and what followed became a labor of love and a discovery of the histories, places, and people deeply connected to that time.
