12:30PM - 1:30PM: Ray Sheehan, Award Winning BBQ Sauces And How To Use Them

About the Book:

Kick the flavor up a notch by making award-winning sauces with wholesome ingredients in your own backyard. From Memphis Mop BBQ Sauce and Kansas City BBQ Sauce to less traditional flavors like Cherry Bourbon BBQ Sauce and Tangy Peach BBQ Sauce, there’s no end to the combinations you can create. Each specialty sauce takes out artificial ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup and flavor enhancers like monosodium glutamate (MSG) found in many store-bought sauces, so you’ll always have a healthy foundation for delicious showstoppers like Slow-Smoked Memphis-Style Ribs, Texas-Style Beef Brisket and even Asian BBQ Smoked Pork Belly Bites. With notes of smoke and secret ingredients sure to leave everyone satisfied, these sauces are going to bring a new world of flavor to your cookouts.

1:30PM - 2:30PM: R.C. Staab, 100 Things to Do on the Jersey Shore Before You Die

While the Jersey Shore is known as a destination where salt water taffy and frozen custard were born, Miss America was crowned and The Twist was invented, there s even more to the Shore just waiting to be discovered. With 100 Things to Do at the Jersey Shore Before You Die as your guide, you ll find the best places to thrill, eat, fish, party and swim on the 130 miles of the New Jersey shoreline from the Sandy Hook Lighthouse to Cape May Point. Climb inside a giant elephant, stroll the world s most famous Boardwalk and observe a vast migration at North America s number one birding destination. Admire the Painted Ladies mansions and discover the town chosen by seven U.S. Presidents as the Nation's Summer Capital. Learn about fun ideas for your family on rainy days, find free beaches (and parking), and choose the hottest nightclubs. Beyond the summer, this guide helps you enjoy the Shore year-round. Discover fall foliage at historic battlefields; take a brisk walk in the winter with a llama or hear the hottest rock bands at the legendary Stone Pony. Local author and Shore expert R.C. Staab deftly leads you through top tips and itineraries, whether you ve spent many summers at the Jersey Shore or are looking for your next beach vacation. His book will help you dive deeper into Shore life and enhance your trip.

3:00PM - 4PM: Peter Cavalier, Bank Street: A Novel

Bank Street is a coming-of-age story about Jerry Flanagan, a 22 year-old college graduate and native of the Jersey Shore.

They discover that even though they all have their own individual career objectives and dreams, they must pull together as a team if they are to survive their first year in the workplace. In addition to helping each other out on the job, they naturally start to socialize outside the workplace. Jerry is smitten with fellow trainee Maria DeMarco, an intelligent, beautiful, and somewhat shy young lady who shares an important secret with Jerry. In addition, Jerry endures a tragic event MORE
