Meet Local Author and Former Cranford Mayor Ed Robinson
July 09, 2015
7:30 p.m.
Cranford Community Center 220 Walnut Avenue
Former Cranford mayor Ed Robinson will talk about his recently published novel, a mystery entitled A “Jersey Shore Angel.” Mr. Robinson will have copies of “A Jersey Shore Angel” available for purchase and for signing. Admission is free and all are welcome. A Cranford resident for many years, Mr. Robinson now lives in Sea Girt. “A Jersey Shore Angel.” is his first book. During Hurricane Sandy, Mr. Robinson had no power for nearly two weeks and sat by candlelight. “They say everybody has a book in them and they are right,” Mr. Robinson said. “With no power in the house, there was nothing to do but write a book. “A Jersey Shore Angel” is a summer read, with a little spice in it.” The novel’s main character is Angel Barnacle. After a decorated career as a New York City detective, he returns to his roots at the Jersey Shore, and, despite two failed marriages, starts a private detective agency chasing down wayward spouses. “As a private detective,” Mr. Robinson noted, “Angel would never get involved romantically with a client, but he can’t resist one of them, a beautiful Broadway star. And, when she becomes a victim of Hurricane Sandy, Angel helps the police change the case’s status from accidental death to murder.”

The Friends of the Cranford Public Library are pleased to welcome back regional historian Kevin Woyce and his progam on New Jersey's State Parks. Some of New Jersey's most exciting history can be found in its more than two dozen State Parks. Old names such as Wawayanda and Hopatcong remind us of the Lenni Lenape, or "Original People." Historic battlefields recall New Jersey's perilous years as "the Crossroads of the American Revolution." Abandoned forges still speak of the state’s first great industry, the beginnings of state’s transportation network can be traced in the paths of the Morris and the Delaware & Raritan Canals. The slide show includes Mr. Woyce’s original photography of many of New Jersey's beautiful state parks, plus vintage maps and images of historic people, places, and events. Mr. Woyce is the author of many books about New Jersey and nearby landmarks, including “New Jersey State Parks: History and Facts,” “Jersey Shore: History and Facts,” “Hudson River Lighthouses,” “Liberty: The Amazing Story of America's Favorite Statue,” and “Lighthouses of the Jersey Shore.” Admission to the program is free and all are welcome.
