2022 was full of surprises and positive things. The Sea Hagg Shop had never been busier and folks were excited to be venturing out again (post-pandemic). After 25 years the property sold and the shop closed in October. But that is not the end of the story…
There is still much going on “Somewhere in Cortez”.

Jan DiRuzzo, children’s author of The Lost Mermaid~A Shem Creek Moonlight Jamboree and its sequel, The Lost Mermaid~Return to the Raspberry Kingdom, will be on hand to sign copies of her books on Saturday and Sunday, February 15th & 16th from 10a.m. to 4 p.m. Lily the Mermaid and Lily’s favorite pirate sidekick, Captain Joe, will also make a guest appearance. Lily and the Captain will be passing out complementary magic stones, found aboard the pirate ship, the Flying Dragon. So there’s guaranteed to be lots of magic along with stickers for the children.
These mythical tales will enrich your child’s imagination and immerse them in a coastal seascape, where they will meet loggerhead turtles, dolphins, fish, oysters, crabs, and a scary octopus. They will visit a musical jamboree and search for treasure aboard a sunken ship. The stories also offer valuable lessons about the danger of judging others by appearance and language and gentle approaches to bullying.
Jan is a graduate of the University of RI and RI College. She has taught writing and literature at both the secondary and college level and has worked as a technical writer for the Naval Department of Defense. Jan has always lived near the sea, originally in Newport, RI and now in Charleston, SC. While kayaking with the dolphins along Shem Creek, she became inspired by the diversity of life both on and off shore and has woven these themes together to share with other young readers. Jan is also available for interactive readings and presentations. Visit www.thelostmermaid.com to learn more about these events.
