Book signing
New York Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe is coming to Topsail. 
Monroe will be at Quarter Moon Books at 708 S. Anderson Blvd. in Topsail Beach on June 27 at 6 p.m. to discuss her new book, The Summer Wind, and sign copies.
The Summer Wind, set for release this month, follows the best-selling first installment of the Lowcountry Summer Trilogy The Summer Girls. The second novel continues the complex relationships of three estranged sisters who come together at their grandmother’s request to her summer home on Sullivan’s Island, Sout Carolina.  
Monroe began writing The Lowcountry Summer Trilogy after learning that half of the resident dolphins in South Carolina and Florida are sick or contaminated. The current plight of the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin became the backdrop of the trilogy.
