SARAH DOWNING- Chronicles of the Outer Banks

For thirty years, Sarah Downing lived on the Outer Banks, immersed in the history and culture of the barrier islands, especially in her role as assistant curator of the Outer Banks History Center and as a freelance writer. Downing now writes in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains from her home outside Asheville, North Carolina but she still maintains her love of sharing stories about the Outer Banks. In her latest book, she uncovers the long history of unconventional characters and curious occurrences in this numinous place. Did you know that escapees from an escargot farm keep the snail police on their toes? A larger-than-life likeness of Sir Walter Raleigh was once beheaded in Manteo, and the town gave itself a royal makeover in honor of a visit from a princess. Or that the village of Corolla was integral to the early years of the Space Race?. Sarah shares these and many more offbeat tales in her book, Chronicles of the Outer Banks: Fish Tales and Salty Gales.

Sarah will be at Duck's Cottage signing copies of her book and greeting her many OBX friends and fans on Thursday June 6th from 9am - 11am. Please join us in celebratng Sarah's sixth book!

Signed copies will be shipped after the event.
