CAM­BRIDGE — Cam­bridge res­i­dents Jim Duffy and Jill Ja­suta will be host­ing a book-sign­ing party in down­town Cam­bridge on Satur­day, Oct. 8, to cel­e­brate the re­lease last month of “Eastern Shore Road Trips: 27 One-Day Ad­ven­tures on Del­mar va.”

The event, which will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Jim­mie & Sook’s Raw Bar & Grill, 527 Poplar Street, is part of the monthly Sec­ond Satur­day fes­tiv­i­ties in down­town Cam­bridge. Art gal­leries in the down­town area will be hold­ing free meet-the-artist re­cep­tions that evening, and many stores will be stay­ing open late as well.

Pub­lished by Duffy and Ja­suta’s fam­ily-owned local busi­ness, Se­crets of the Eastern Shore, the book was writ­ten by Duffy, an award­win­ning mag­a­zine writer, and fea­tures pho­to­graphs by Ja­suta, whose work has been on dis­play re­cently in several area art gal­leries. The cou­ple has lived in Cam­bridge for the past 12 years.

“Eastern Shore Road Trips” is the first vol­ume in a planned se­ries of books fo­cused on ex­plor­ing the sights and en­joy­ing the sto­ries of the Del­marva Penin­sula. The 27 ex­cur­sions in the book in­clude a num­ber of local itin­er­ar­ies, with trips de­voted to the City of Cam­bridge, Black­wa­ter Na­tional Wildlife Refuge, and the Har­riet Tub­man Un­der­ground Rail­way. A pack­age of three bonus ex­cur­sions that read­ers can down­load af­ter buy­ing the book in­cludes a trip to Hooper’s and Tay­lors Is­lands.

The Chop­tank River Light­house at Long Wharf is fea­tured on the cover of the book. The ge­o­graphic range of other trips in Eastern Shore Road Trips stretches from down in Cape Charles, Va. up into Kent County in Mary­land and Sus­sex County in Delaware.

“So many peo­ple here in Cam­bridge and Dorch­ester have been so sup­port­ive of how we’re try­ing to cel­e­brate this area through Se­crets of the Eastern Shore, that we felt like we should have a local event that’s really geared for them,” Duffy said.

There will be some snacks avail­able at the af­fair, along with a cash bar.

Books will be avail­able for pur­chase at the event, and peo­ple are wel­come to bring along copies for sign­ing that they have al­ready picked up else­where. This year’s re­vamped line of Se­crets of the Eastern Shore hol­i­day cards will also be on dis­play at the event and avail­able for or­der­ing.
