Title: 'Atlantic Beach', the book published
Author: Graeme Moore
Publisher: ABC 15 Carolina Live News
Nearly 80 years of Atlantic Beach history has been put in black and white in a brand-new book.
The latest installment of the "Images of America" series spotlights Atlantic Beach and was written by Sherry Suttles and the Atlantic Beach Historical Society.
One of the original all-black beaches in America caught the attention of the book's author -- a woman not even from the area.
"It was just a miracle to me that there was a little piece of earth that Black folk owned, paid for and bought, and had done so 75 years ago. And there was nothing else written about it that I knew of," said the author of the book Sherry Suttles.
Suttles will hold a book signing this Saturday from 1pm - 3pm at the Books-a-Million at Myrtle Beach Mall near North Myrtle Beach.
