Lost Amusement Parks Of The North Jersey Shore
Thursday October 12, 2017
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Author, Rick Geffken, will be at the Library to discuss his recently published book, Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore. This book brings together rarely seen images from the Library of Congress, local historical societies, and private collections to document how the Jersey Shore became the most famous vacation and recreational destination in the coastal United States. The remarkable details in these pictures capture a simpler way of life in our country, when families took their children to boardwalks to savor candy apples, salt water taffy, hot dogs and hamburgers, popcorn, and, of course, the rides. Please contact the Atlantic Highlands Library for information.
