Boston-area food journalist and former Daily Candy editor Erin Byers Murray left the writing grind and joined the Island Creek Oyster team in March of 2009. Now, as her sojourn on the shore comes to a close, Murray is announcing her new book about the experience: “This spring, I got a book deal with St. Martin’s Press. The book, titled SHUCKED, will be a memoir about my time at Island Creek, about leaving the real world to get my hands dirty on an oyster farm, and about my relationship with a farm, a town, and its people.” Her blog has been running for 20 months; this week’s installment announces her last week in the muck.
