North Carolina's Amazing Coast: Natural Wonders from Alligators to Zoeas Book Launch: May 21

May 21, 2013 — 2-5 p.m., Duck's Cottage Downtown, 105 Sir Walter Raleigh Street, Manteo.

You're invited to join North Carolina and Georgia Sea Grant programs and the University of Georgia Press in highlighting the publication of North Carolina's Amazing Coast: From Alligators to Zoea at our May launch celebration.

A delight for learners of all ages, the book is a true partnership of the two Sea Grant programs. Terri Kirby Hathaway, our marine education specialist, and Kathleen Angione, a writer and former Coastwatch senior editor, teamed with Georgia writers David Bryant and George Davidson, and illustrator Charlotte Ingram.

Soon to be available in local bookstores, the book contains more than two dozen new North Carolina entries — such as the red wolf, margined sea star, blanket flower and maritime forest — that join a selection of southeastern species that also appeared in Georgia's Amazing Coast.

Join us for this event to meet Terri Kirby Hathaway and Kathleen Angione and learn about some of the creatures, plants and ecosystems in the coastal region.
