Join us for a discussion, wine & cheese, and a book signing with Margaret “Pooch” Buchholz this weekend as she discusses LBI history and her book, Long Beach Island Chronicles. She will give a presentation showing photos from the book, and read excerpts from the stories. Books with personalized inscriptions will be available.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In Long Beach Island Chronicles, a curated selection of great writing from The SandPaper, The Beachcomber, and other publications, the shared experience that is Long Beach Island is presented for locals and visitors alike.
More than 70 accounts capture quintessential experiences on the water and on the beach, the joy of a shore summer and our dramatically different seasons.
There is humor, history and natural history, the terror of great storms, environmental warnings from the past, and timeless island pleasures that continue from one generation to the next. From stories about landmarks to ice cream; from fishing, sailing, and surfing to rescues, beachcombing, and entertainment, this collection is an all-encompassing, salty sampler of Long Beach Island life.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Margaret Thomas Buchholz is the author/editor of many books about Long Beach Island and Jersey Shore history. She is the former publisher and editor of The Beachcomber. With family roots that go back to the earliest days on the Island, she lives on Barnegat Bay, in the home built by her father. Long Beach Island Chronicles is a follow-up to her previous selection of stories in The Long Beach Island Reader.
