"The Voices of the Chesapeake Bay Interview Project is created to help  us further develop our 'sense of place.'  The Voices Project is ongoing, inherently 'inclusive' and well-rounded, giving us the ability to see our bio-region, the Chesapeake Bay watershed, from a variety of perspectives 
and points of view. With this ability we can fully and truly appreciate this incredible place called the Chesapeake Bay."

Book signing to follow

Author Christopher White spent two years living on Tilghman Island and working with three legendary captains of the traditional wooden Chesapeake Bay oyster boats known as skipjacks. Through a discussion with a group of these lively characters, we will begin to understand the challenges of living on the Bay and sailing a traditional skipjack. The event will bring the audience face-to-face with a critically endangered tradition that reaches back over 100 years. Produced by Michael Buckley

"This is not merely a book for those who already know the Chesapeake, although they will be enchanted by Tom Horton's vast knowledge, narrative skills and eye for detail. Like the true bay native he is, Mr. Horton uses the Chesapeake as a limitless resource from which to harvest a great bounty of observations about politics, nature, and human beings." -- New York Times on Bay Country.
