On Wednesday, April 12, from noon to 3:00 p.m., Keeper James will be signing and personalizing copies of his book, Shipwrecks of the Outer Banks: Dramatic Rescues and Fantastic Wrecks in the Graveyard of the Atlantic, Globe Pequot Press. The U.S. Life-Saving Service (1871-1915) was the direct predecessor of today’s U.S. Coast Guard.
The book has been a national best-seller and has been a popular local book signing event at the Island Convenience store in Rodanthe. As usual, special bookmarks with the place and date will accompany each book.

Each program about the U.S. Life-Saving Service consists of appetizers of true, exciting, highly dramatic Outer Banks stories of ‘America’s Forgotten Heroes.’ For more information, see www.KeeperJames.com/programs.
