About this Event
Award winning author Kimberly Brock has recently released her most recent novel, The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare, and as you can imagine- it is of great interest to Roanoke Island readers! Adriana Trigiani said it was "Compelling and immersive, The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare is the story of Dare’s descendant Alice, who pushes away the pain of the past until her daughter Penn holds her accountable to the family story. Brock’s lush narrative is rich in American and Virginia history with deep roots in the mysterious disappearance of the lost colony on Roanoke Island. As Alice and Penn seek answers, they rely on the enduring strength of their foremother Eleanor, who was determined to leave the truth behind so generations might walk in its light.” The New York Journal of Books says author Kimberly Brock "delicately balances mystery, family lore, and honoring one’s forebears in sonorous language throughout a sweeping story with three points of view, two timeframes, and remarkably steady pacing. Weaving myth and legend with historical fact pertaining to an age-old American mystery, The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare is a spellbinding, beautiful story written by a graceful hand with just the right amount of mysticism.”
We are so excited to welcome Kimberly to Manteo and Roanoke Island, where the legend of Eleanor Dare and the Lost Colony is a part of everyday life. Kimberly will be talking about her book and signing copies. A complimentary toast to the author and a hardback copy of The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare are included in the ticket.
