Author and storyteller Jim Duffy of Secrets of the Eastern Shore will share tales of Delmarva days gone by in a talk sponsored by the Bethany Beach Cultural and Historic Affairs Committee on Tue., Nov. 14. A resident of Cambridge, Md., Duffy is an award-winning writer and the author of five books, including two collections of Eastern Shore Road Trips and the new Shore Fun: The Wanderer’s Guide to Delmarva.

He founded the homegrown business Secrets of the Eastern Shore with his wife, photographer Jill Jasuta, to celebrate the heritage and beauty of the Delmarva Peninsula and inspire people to get out and explore the glories of the Eastern Shore and Southern Delaware.

Duffy has given storytelling presentations along these lines in dozens of towns up and down the peninsula in recent years. He also appears regularly on WBOC-TV’s Delmarva Life, telling “Thowback Thursday” tales. This storytelling journey will venture from one town to another on the peninsula, touching on big developments and themes in history through the personal stories of triumph, struggle, and community-mindedness. He will probably share some of his wandering “Secrets” as well.

Duffy will have copies of his books on hand for sale after the talk. Audience members are also welcome to bring previously purchased copies of Secrets of the Eastern Shore books to the event for an autograph.

The session will begin at 5pm at Bethany Beach Town Hall, 214 Garfield Parkway.
