In 1899, the Town of Belhaven was officially incorporated. Defined by its deep harbor, the small town thrived during the 20th century with lumber and saw mills and oyster and fishing industries. In 1928, it became the last link of the Intracoastal Waterway, completing the connection from Beaufort to Boston and making Belhaven a scenic water-town destination for boating, birding, fishing, as well as shopping and dining.

Sponsored by Between Water & Main Bed & Breakfast, I’ll be going to Belhaven’s Wilkinson Center, 144 W. Main St., Sun., Feb. 11, 2018, 3-4 p.m., to present “I Walked 444 Miles to Make a Memory,” a hilarious, motivational program about my New York Times best-selling memoir “Not Without My Father.” Book sales and signing to follow.

Tickets are $10 and can be reserved by calling 252-943-0367.

Want me to come to your area for an event? Here’s some ideas and info for my publicist.

Join Andra at the library for an interactive discussion. Andra’s memoir is about making memories, about turning I wish I had into I’m glad I did.

Andra’s presentation challenges audiences to evaluate their relationships. She gives attendees concrete ideas and strategies to leave inspired to Make a Memory of their own. Andra will have tools available to help each person create a specific invite for a loved one. Everyone will leave charged to Make a Memory.
