The Jersey Devil...the mysterious Blue Hole of Winslow...Joe Mulliner, the dancing bandit...all part of Pinelands heritage, and all being shared around a campfire Saturday in Southampton by Grammy-nominated musician and author Paul Evans Pedersen, Jr.

Paul Evans Pedersen, Jr. (Pinelands Preservation Alliance)

The Pinelands Preservation Alliance brings Paul in to spin tales and strum guitar on the grounds of their headquarters on Pemberton Road, starting at 8 PM.

He'll draw heavily from his book, The Legendary Pine Barrens: New Tales from Old Haunts, and sticks around afterward to sign copies of his compilation that will be on sale at the site.

PPA staffers say they'll supply the fireside seats and marshmallows. Just bring your eyes, ears, and imagination for a memorable night of thrills, chills and harmony.  

The admission price is $10 by registration. Speak to Tom at 609-859-8860, extension 14,or email
