On Saturday, April 23, enjoy canapes "on the house" in Oxford, Maryland, as you hear a totally new take on Maryland's colonial history.
Award-winning novelist B.B. Shamp will introduce readers to the world of a bustling and contentious eighteenth-century seaport in a reading and conversation based on her latest novel, A Wife in Watercolor, at the historic Robert Morris Inn.
Shamp will discuss her book and sign copies in the Inn’s dining room at 4 pm, following annual town festivities known as Oxford Day. Books will be available for purchase on site from independent bookstore Mystery Loves Company. Appetizers will be provided by the publisher, and drinks will be available from the bar.
A Selbyville, Delaware writer who specializes in deep historical research and sharply drawn characters, Shamp re-imagines a Chesapeake Bay town and plantation society dominated by powerful merchant Robert Morris, whose son, Robert Morris Jr., later moved to Philadelphia and gained renown as a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the financier of the American Revolution.
