The third event in our Books on the Banks speaker series features best-selling author Lisa Wingate. Lisa penned The Prayer Box, a wonderful novel about reinvention and redemption that was set on Hatteras Island and has consistently been one of our best-selling novels. Lisa's latest book is The Story Keeper, a great story set in Appalachia that weaves together a modern day search for a lost manuscript and the 19th century love story it documents. Lisa has had over 20 best sellers in the faith based fiction genre and has earned many awards, accolades and a loyal fan base. Meet us at the Dare County Arts Council at 6pm to hear Lisa read from both of these novels and talk about her craft. More about The Story Keeper-
"Successful New York editor, Jen Gibbs, is at the top of her game until a mysterious manuscript from an old slush pile appears on her desk. Turning the pages, Jen finds herself drawn into the life of Sarra, a young girl trapped by dangerous men in the turn of the century Appalachia. A risky hunch may lead to The Story Keeper's hidden origins and its unknown author, but when the trail turns toward the heart of the Blue Ridge, a place Jen thought she'd left behind forever, the price of a blockbuster next book deal may be higher than she's willing to pay."
among BOOKLIST'S Top 10 of 2012 and Top 10 of 2013, Lisa Wingate
skillfully weaves lyrical writing and unforgettable Southern settings
with elements of women's fiction, history, and mystery to create
stories that Publisher's Weekly calls "Masterful" and ForeWord Magazine
refers to as "Filled with lyrical prose, hope, and healing.” Lisa is a
journalist, an inspirational speaker, a reviewer for the New York
Journal of Books, and the author of over over twenty novels and
countless magazine pieces.
This event is a fund-raiser for NEST (Network for Endangered Sea Turtles), a suggested donation is $5. Seating is first come, first serve.

This year, I'm keeping track here on our site of what I've read and am reading. Should be interesting to see which books are stand alones and which ones spin-off down paths paved with stepping-stones of inter-related titles. I'm kinda curious to see exactly how many books I actually read in one year! Fair warning- I am a very eclectic reader who usually has about a dozen books lying in various states of unread on my bed. Fiction, poetry, YA, spiritual, self-help, non-fiction- you name it, they all have a place at my table and I have a voracious appetite for the printed word! So bring it on 2014- imreddy, imreddy, imreddy, imreddy!
Reader's note: the short reviews included with each title are my own thoughts/impressions/opinions or ramblings about that particular book. I have also instituted a STAR rating system on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being just go ahead and add that title to your cart that's how good I thought it was.
