Still Water Bending is the story of a third-generation Chesapeake waterman, his estranged daughter, and their unusual path to reconciliation in a drafty old shed, building a traditional deadrise skiff. It’s also a story of place—a deeply felt song of the Bay’s natural beauty and cultural history. RSVP Here

Author Wendy Mitman Clarke

Wendy Mitman Clarke, the former executive editor of Chesapeake Bay Magazine and author of Window on the Chesapeake: The Bay, Its People and Places, has woven years of living on and writing about the Bay, its traditions, and natural history and beauty into this story of Jines Arley Evans and his daughter Lily Rae. Though fiction, the rendering of Bay culture and environment that runs through the novel is rooted in her career as a journalist, observing, interviewing, and curating the details of Chesapeake life.
