Learn about "New Jersey Shipwrecks" at Three Ocean County Libraries In July

(OCEAN COUNTY, NJ) -- Travel the storm-tossed New Jersey surf through history with noted local author Margaret Thomas Buchholz during “New Jersey Shipwrecks,” at three Ocean County Library branches: Barnegat Branch (July 9), Upper Shores Branch (July 14) and Jackson Branch (July 25). Each takes place at 2:00pm.

Through illustrations, photographs, and harrowing writings of survivors and observers, the program will explore the treacherous shoals and inlets of the “Graveyard of the Atlantic.” It will also highlight the 1848 founding of the Lifesaving Service, and its development into the U.S. Coast Guard.

Margaret co-authored Great Storms of the Jersey Shore, which The New York Times called “one of the best documented compendiums ever published of what it meant to be there.” Her New Jersey Shipwrecks: 350 Years in the Graveyard of the Atlantic won the Foundation for Coast Guard History award. 

She also wrote Island Album: Photographs and Memories of Long Beach Island and Josephine: From Washington Working Girl to Fisherman’s Wife, and edited Long Beach Island Chronicles and Long Beach Island Reader. Her Shore-oriented essays appear in two anthologies, Four Seasons at the Shore and Shore Stories. 

Registration at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events is required for this free program. The Barnegat Branch is located at 112 Burr Street; Upper Shores Branch is located at 112 New Jersey Avenue; and the Jackson Branch is located at 2 Jackson Drive.
