Writer Tom Horton and photographer David Harp will talk about their recent book Water's Way: Life Along the Chesapeake, published by The Johns Hopkins University Press, at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 15, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.
Through words and pictures, the authors lead a journey through "those rare, hidden nooks of the bay country where nature still appears as glorious and untrammeled as it did a thousand years ago" and describe the "fundamental, unsentimental respect for the bay" essential to its survival. The book will be available for sale and signing. This event is cosponsored with the Johns Hopkins University Press.
Tom Horton reported on the Chesapeake Bay for The Sun for 15 years before becoming a freelance writer in 1987. His first book, Bay Country, won the John Burroughs Medal for the year's best natural history book. David Harp acquired his first camera at age 12 and has been taking pictures since. A former staff photographer for The Sun Magazine, Harp has received awards from the Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C., Press Association and the National Press Photographers Association. His work is featured regularly in national environmental and lifestyle publications.
