Book reading and signing with Earl Swift at Chop Suey Books

Thursday, Aug. 23

Former Virginian-Pilot journalist and Style contributor Earl Swift’s new book, “Chesapeake Requiem” is one of the best books yet on Tangier, the tiny island known for its fishermen and old ways — which also will likely be the first community in America totally wiped out by climate change. A recent Washington Post review slammed earlier accounts of Tangier and said this “masterful” work “finally gets it right,” calling it the definitive book. Swift will be reading and signing books at Chop Suey Books from 6 to 7 p.m. Free.
