Author and storyteller Jim Duffy of Secrets of the Eastern shore will spin tales of Delmarva days gone by in a talk at the Cambridge Woman’s Club on Fri., March 3, 2023 at 1pm. A Cambridge resident, Duffy is an award-winning writer and author of five books, including two collections of Eastern Shore Road Trips and the brand-new Shore Fun: The Wanderer’s Guide to Delmarva.

Duffy founded the homegrown business Secrets of the Eastern Shore with his wife, the 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. This storytelling journey will venture from one small town on the Delmarva to another and include stories about the all-female Petticoat Regime that “ruled “ the resort town of Ocean City in its early days, a world record-setting chicken whose egg-laying exploits led to a big city parade in her honor, and the wild and wooly (and drunken) days when a small Delmarva town ranked as “The Quickie Wedding Capital” of the Eastern seaboard.

Duffy will have copies of his books in hand for sale after the talk. Feel free to bring previously purchased copies for signing as well.  The event will be held at the Cambridge Woman’s Club historic Sycamore cottage located at 417 High St. in Cambridge Md.,. Refreshments at 12:30, storytelling at 1pm.
