Suzanne Tate has been charming children and parents for over 30 years with her Nature Series books featuring the many kinds of maritime and coastal creatures found on the Outer Banks. From her first book, Crabby & Nabby, to the final book in the series, Tommy Tuna, she and illustrator Nags Head artist James Melvin have been educating and entertaining generations of beach lovers. Now she has put pen to paper once again and written Crabby Lady Looks Back- Life Stories by Suzanne Tate. Behind the brightly colored cover, drawn by Melvin, lies even more colorful stories about Suzanne's experiences in US Naval Reserve Training, her days as a Park Service Naturalist, her time at the University of New Mexico and more. Stories both heartwarming and heartbreaking, about love, loss and of course, writing.
We are so pleased to be able to host Suzanne for a Crabby Lady Looks Back book signing Friday, August 26, 3pm - 5pm. Suzanne will be on hand signing both her latest book and, of course, all the rest of the titles that she has produced over the years. We welcome everyone- visitors and locals alike- to join us in celebrating a remarkable author and Outer Banks woman.
