Bridger is a brand new book from local author Jeremy Bliven that tells the story of Bridger, a little kitten who was heartlessly thrown off the Mann's Harbor Bridge in 2017. At the time, a team of NCDOT divers were inspecting the bridge- a task undertaken only every four years- heard the splash, saw something in the water and rescued Bridger. Reece Newman, one of the divers, ultimately adopted Bridger and he now lives at home with Reece, his wife and two other feline siblings. Told from Bridger's perspective and illustrated by terrific photos, this heart-warming tale has become an instand holiday hit for ALL ages. A recent booksigning featuring Jeremy, Reece and Bridger at Downtown Books drew a huge crowd of fans and in the last two weeks of the year, this book became our best selling book of 2019.
