First Friday: Two authors, One Party!

Two highly anticipated books from local authors are coming soon! Hannah Bunn West's Remarkable Women of the Outer Banks arrives April 25 from Arcadia Press and is a, well, remarkable look at the women who have shaped Outer Banks history. Alicia Bessette's first book in her Outer Banks Bookshop mystery series, Smile Beach Murder, arrives May 10 BUT we've been given special permission by the publisher to sell copies at our big launch party! Both authors will be on hand signing and talking about their books, meeting friends and fans and celebrating their accomplishments with Downtown Books. Please come by between 6pm and 8pm and raise a glass to these two very special women!

First Friday is a fun, family friendly event taking place throughout Downtown Manteo and features live music throughout town, later shop hours, restaurant specials, art show openings, trunk show, book signings and more. It's a great place to meet friends and enjoy a night out- downtown! 

Signed books will be shipped after event.
