Mary Ellen Riddle Book Launch!

2017 First Fridays kick off on April 7 in Downtown Manteo! First Fridays feature live music throughout town, art show openings, book signings, restaurant specials, later shop hours and more! Downtown Books is pleased to be hosting a book launch celebrating local writer Mary Ellen Riddle's new release from Arcadia Press- Outer Banks Shipwrecks: Graveyard of the Atlantic. Mary Ellen has been writing on and about the Outer Banks for many years. She is currently the education curator at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras. She has researched more than 100 shipwrecks that occurred within the Graveyard of the Atlantic from the 1600s through the 1900s. Both topside and underwater photography show the variety of watercraft in the area from wooden lifeboats to a German submarine. The images in this book were gathered from private and public collections, including those of the North Carolina Maritime Museum system.

Please join us as we honor Mary Ellen's accomplishment and toast the latest book in our Outer Banks section! Mary Ellen will be on hand to sign books, talk about her book and we will toast her with bubbles at 6pm! First Fridays are THE Fridays to grab the family and friends and head over to Roanoke Island! See you there!
