Author Earl Swift kicks off 2018 Joan Marshall Lecture Serie

7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at Onancock Baptist Church

The 2018 Joan Marshall Lecture Series, presented by the Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society, will launch with veteran author and journalist Earl Swift discussing “Chesapeake Requiem,” a timely portrait of Tangier Island as the very water that has long sustained the 200-year-old Chesapeake Bay crabbing community is erasing the island day by day, wave by wave. Barring major intervention by the federal government, this storied place likely will succumb first among U.S. towns to the effects of climate change.

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. at the Onancock Baptist Church Family Life Center, 1 Crockett Ave., Onancock. Books will be available for purchase, and Swift will sign copies after the lecture.

Tickets are $10 for members of the Historical Society, $15 for not-yet-members. To purchase tickets, visit shorehistory.org/ticketsales.
Please bring a copy of your ticket purchase receipt to the event as it will serve as your ticket.

This lecture is made possible through a grant from the Jane Batten Donor-Advised Fund of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation.
