"Joel Brown has written more than 400 articles for the Boston Globe, many of them on North Shore treasures, including the launch of the Ardelle, the restoration of the Adventure and the rebuilding of the Lane’s Cove Fish Shack. His book, THE ESSEX COASTAL BYWAY GUIDE, follows the new Essex Heritage route along the shore from Lynn to Newburyport, exploring the unique historic, cultural and natural resources along the way. Joel Brown will share how he came to write the BYWAY GUIDE, why the North Shore is different from other tourist destinations and how its future is changing. A Massachusetts native, Brown has lived in Newburyport for 15 years."
