Cerino to Unveil New Book on First Friday, November 7, 2014 at Robert Ortiz Studios
Chris Cerino’s Kent County by Water: A Portrait of Maryland’s Most Scenic Peninsula
On Friday, November 7, 2014, Chestertown Mayor and Sultana Education Foundation Vice President Chris Cerino will unveil his new book, entitled Kent County by Water, at Robert Ortiz Studios at 207 South Cross Street in downtown Chestertown. While working on this project, Cerino collected thousands of photographs during guided canoe, kayak, and sailing trips on the Chester River, Sassafras River, and the Chesapeake Bay proper. The resulting book features 120 pages of full-color digital images that provide readers with an intimate look into the rivers, creeks, and marshes that make Kent County such an ideal location for boaters and paddling enthusiasts. In addition to stunning pictures of the flora and fauna that inhabit the waterways of the Eastern Shore, the book also portrays the people and communities that make this region such a special place to live, work, and play.
Free food and drink will be provided, and the author will give brief talks about the book featuring a variety of images from the publication starting at 5 pm, 6 pm, and 7 pm. Books will also be on sale for purchase. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to mingle with the author, view spectacular photographs of Kent County, and enjoy free wine and hors d’oeuvres with friends and family.
Event is Free and everyone is invited.
