Lomie Lou Cooke & Stuart Cooke, edited by Jacqueline DeGroot
This local history photographic narrative is subtitled A North Carolina Family’s Journey and Unapologetic History of Ocean Isle Beach. Authors Lomie Lou Cooke and her son Stuart Cooke (who were the third family to live at OIB) offer a firsthand description of the town’s development from a goat farm to the thriving beach destination we know today. Jack DeGroot, who lives at Sunset Beach, is known for her novels set in the local beach community as well as history books about the area. For this one she served as editor for the Cookes. Join us for an eye-opening and insightful discussion about the true story of early Ocean Isle Beach. This gallery event is free, but seating is limited so reservations are necessary. Call Sunset River Marketplace at 910.575.5999 to hold your spot. The gallery is located at 10283 Beach Drive SW (NC 179) in Calabash, NC. Website is: www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com.
