EATONTOWN, N.J. - Oct. 2, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Hidden History of Monmouth County
Local author Muriel J. Smith will be available to sign copies of book

Monmouth County's past encompasses more than just sandy beaches and rural farm life. George Washington fought at the Battle of Monmouth as the region played a pivotal role in the birth of the republic. Henry Hudson anchored off Monmouth's shores in 1609 and was the first European to meet with the Lenape Native Americans there. A gun barrel of the USS New Jersey, the most decorated battleship in American history, was painstakingly transported to Battery Lewis, a fortification built along the county's highlands to protect New York Harbor during World War II. Bruce Springsteen elevated Asbury Park and the Stone Pony into a national music destination, and he remains the unofficial poet laureate of the Jersey Shore. Authors Rick Geffken and Muriel J. Smith highlight compelling stories of the seaside county's four-hundred-year history.
