    Hatteras Light by Philip Gerard During World War II, a German U-boat sinks ships off the coast of the Outer Banks. The Hatteras lighthouse keepers and the tight-knit community’s routine life is shattered.  Over a few crucial days, we become acquainted with the men and women of Hatteras and with the German officers aboard U-55.  Based on historical facts, this novel weaves an interesting NC story. 

    Philip Gerard teaches in the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts program of the Department of Creative Writing at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.  He often writes historical articles for Our State magazine. 

    Rocky River Readers will meet at 7pm on August 28th in the Parlor.  We invite new members to join our discussion.
