obx author suzanne tate to tell history of duck
At one time Duck was a sleepy fishing village. When local author Suzanne Tate came to the village in the 60s with her husband Everett, the town was about to become part of the modern Outer Banks tourist boom. Reporting for the North Beach Sun, Kip Tabb interviews Suzanne about how the town changed and the book she is writing for Arcadia Publishing.
“To most readers, Suzanne Tate is best known as the author of the Nature Series children’s books. Beautifully illustrated by James Melvin, there are 33 books in the series now, with titles ranging from Crabby & Nabby—the first book—to Wendy Whale, her most recent.
But Suzanne’s first love was history. She graduated from the University of New Mexico with a degree in anthropology, and the first books she published were oral histories of the Outer Banks: Bring Me Duck, Memories of Manteo and Roanoke Island and Logs & Moonshine, Tales of Buffalo City.”
