Underground Railroad Book talk at Winery
4:30 p.m.: Layton’s Chance Winery, 4225 New Bridge Road, Vienna, MD 21869
The popular “Book Talks” series featuring writers who live on Delmarva will begin its 2018 season with Jim Duffy, author of Tubman Travels: 32 Underground Railroad Journeys on Delmarva. Host of the series this year is Layton’s Chance Winery, near Vienna, Maryland. This first program on Friday, April 27, will begin at 4:30pm with a meet and greet the author, followed by a presentation and discussion.
Duffy will tell a number of the true-life Underground Railroad stories recounted in his book and discuss the life lessons and key discoveries he made while working on it. The book includes stories not just from the lives of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, but also from a number of other, lesser-known figures who made their own journeys to freedom through the Delmarva Peninsula.
This series is offered by Westside Historical Society as part of its mission to preserve and promote the rich heritage of the Nanticoke watershed and western Wicomico County. Audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussion. Admission is free. Light refreshments are provided. There will be an opportunity to buy copies of the featured book at the end of the program.
