Join us on Thursday evening, September 13, as Eddie Doherty discusses his book Seven Miles After Sundown. Copies of this book will be available for purchase (cash or check only, please). A book signing with follow.
About the Author: Eddie Doherty fished the East End of the Cape Cod Canal so often that other fishermen started calling him East End Eddie. Thus, a nick name and pen name were born together. Doherty is a graduate of Dominican Academy, Attleboro High School, and the University of South Florida. He worked for almost 37 years in the Massachusetts Court system where he became the youngest Assistant Clerk-Magistrate in the state at age 25 for the Attleboro District Court before being appointed 18 years later to the lifetime position of Clerk-Magistrate of the Wrentham District Court by His Excellency, A. Paul Cellucci, Governor of the Commonwealth. He heard evidence on everything from speeding to murder, but now in retirement is hearing the sounds of his grandchildren’s giggle and of striped bass breaking the surface of the ocean.
Doherty has been published in Cape Cod Magazine, On The Water, The Fisherman Magazine, Cape Cod Times, The Boston Globe, The Sun Chronicle, Coastal Angler Magazine, and the Congressional Record. He fishes in the Stan Gibbs Cape Cod Canal Fisherman’s Classic every year and his striped bass entry won the shore division in his first Buzzards Bay Anglers Club Fall Derby. He lives close to the Cape Cod Canal in Mattapoisett with his wife Joanne.
