Path of the Great Gale of 1878 that doomed the Chesapeake Bay steamer Express. This was one of the more tragic shipwrecks in Maryland water. Learn all about it at one of the upcoming talks this fall for “Great Storms of the Chesapeake.”

So far there are seven events lined up through the fall and holiday season, from talks to book signings. I’m very excited about them all and there’s quite a variety, from a discussion of my new mystery to talks on the Great Storms of the Chesapeake to a discussion of President John F. Kennedy’s visit to the upper Chesapeake Bay region 50 years ago. Hope to see you at an event!
