When:   August 12, 2022

Time:     1:00 P.M.

The Lewes Historical Society is delighted to announce that local author, Corinne Litzenberg has just released her new book, L is for Lewes, an A to Z Maritime History. As a member and volunteer with the Lewes Historical Society, Corinne wanted to memorialize the Society’s 60th Anniversary this year, 2022. Her book takes the reader through each letter of the alphabet in a series of verses about Lewes, lavishly illustrated with photographs and artwork. Through a set of creative collaborations with several organizations and individuals, the author collected vivid images of Lewes to help tell the town’s history and celebrate the Lewes Historical Society. 

Corinne worked closely with the staff and volunteers at LHS to include pictures of significant objects in the collection, as well as notable members of the community. She invited member-artists of the Lewes-based Cape Artists to share their works to help illustrate the book. Photographers Deny Howeth, Kim Trost, Sue Ingram Keller, Ron McArthur, Gregory Breese, and Fred Phillips all graciously shared their photos on a variety of Lewes subjects. And, to honor her passion for environmental protection, Corinne included key images from DNREC and the University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environmental Sciences.
