* View the short film "Changing Tides" to find out why New Jersey was the "Oyster Capital of the World" and see the characters, boats and the oysters that made "more millionaires per square mile" in this small town in Cumberland County, New Jersey. Then, co-author Rachel Dolhanczyk will share highlights from the new book The AJ Meerwald and New Jersey's Oyster Industry that charts the history of New Jersey's Delaware Bay oysters and the historic ship, 1928 Schooner AJ Meerwald, that carries the industry's traditions today. Following the talk there will be a book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
