Sandie Gerken - Storied Sussex
Sandie Gerken will be appearing to sign copies of Storied Sussex, a collection of history events and stories that have shaped Sussex County.
Written originally as history articles for a local newspaper, High Tide News, Sandie offers these varied narratives of Sussex County because local history matters to her. Local natives and newcomers, alike, will enjoy reading and learning about events, places, traditions, industries, people, and pastimes that chronicle Sussex County’s past.
Sandie is a Dagsboro native. Growing up in Sussex County, she learned the local lore from her parents while riding the back roads in search of graves of ancestors. As a result, she has had a lifelong love of history and a passion for genealogy. Now retired, she devotes her time to genealogy research, painting watercolors, and soccer for kids with special needs.
The signing will take place on Saturday, September 15th, from 2 until 4 PM.
