Do you love steamy summer romance novels? How about river cruises on a hot summer night?
Come sail away with us on August 10th at 6pm aboard the Essex River Queen for a fun-filled night with Jodie Slaughter, author of White Whiskey Bargain, Andrea Martucci, host of the Shelf Love Podcast and your romance-friendly booksellers at Copper Dog Books. There will be a book signing, a moderated Q and A, mingling (of course), cheese and crackers, desserts, and a cash bar. Tickets are $20 for the cruise and don't forget to buy a signed book!
Enjoy the opportunity to escape to the unspoiled natural beauty of the Essex River onboard the Essex River Queen I. Essex River Cruises & Charters is locally owned and operated with an experienced and knowledgable Captain and Crew on board, in the rain or shine. The marsh itself is part of the Essex River estuary, an intriguing natural work in progress. Formed 15,000 years ago by melting glaciers of the last Ice Age, the marsh serves as feeding ground for many species of beautiful birds and abundant wildlife. For generations it has sustained boat builders, fisherman, clammers, entrepreneurs and characters of all sorts from the Agawam natives to the present residents.
Easily accessible, Essex is only 20 minutes away from Beverly, a forty-five minute drive north of Boston, MA and Portsmouth, NH, and under an hour and half drive from Worcester, MA, Cape Cod and Providence, RI. Before or after your cruise, we highly suggest taking some time to look around the local antique shops and get a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants.
