Novelists Daniel Norris and Billy Beasley to Speak this Month at Federal Point History Center

By / Local Events / Wednesday, 08 April 2015 04:00

The Federal Point Historic Preservation Society welcomes two local novelists to their April 20th meeting.  Daniel Norris, well known to our local literary community as an author and publisher of numerous non-fiction books has written his first novel, Cape Fear Blackwater Deep. Carolina Beach native Billy Beasley, will also speak about his novel, The River Hideaway. The meeting begins at 7:30 at the Federal Point History Center, 1121-A N. Lake Park Blvd., Carolina Beach and is open to the general public. Both author’s books will be available for purchase and signing by the authors.
The River Hideaway by Billy Beasley is set in 1967 and Wilmington, NC, like much of the country, is embedded in racial turmoil. Two boys on the brink of manhood— Bret Marin and Clarence (Money) Wilkins—forge an unlikely friendship that alters the course of their lives forever. Bret and Money find their friendship tested by the racially charged times, by the cruel demands of an overbearing father, and ultimately by an allure that develops between Bret and Money’s sister, Teke.

1121-A North Lake Park Blvd, Carolina Beach. Adjacent to the Carolina Beach Town Hall. Use Town Hall parking lot south of Town Hall main entrance.
