Author Talk with East End Eddie Doherty

Join us for an evening with author of "Seven Miles After Sundown", East End Eddie Doherty. Relive a colorful account of one man's quest in the pursuit of striped bass along the rocky banks of the world famous Cape Cod Canal. East End Eddie Doherty  is a retired Clerk-Magistrate with a life-long passion for fishing. In fact, he fished the East End of the Cape Cod Canal so often that other fishermen started calling him East End Eddie. Thus, a nickanme and a pen name were born together. The author has fished the warm currents of the Gulf of Mexico through the rugged coast of Maine and with his love of fishing, comes his love of his grandchildren and teaching them the ways of the surf.
