Bobby Hunt to speak at Coffee With the Authors June 25

On Thursday, June 25 from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, Sunset River Marketplace art gallery in Calabash, NC will feature author Bobby Hunt as part of its ongoing Coffee With the Authors series. Hunt has co-authored They Call Me Panda along with his son Matt Hunt. The book is a humorous story of a father and son bonding over months as they hiked the legendary Appalachian Trail, a 2,200-mile torturous path winding through 13 states from Georgia to Main. It is the true tale of the characters they met, the wildlife they encountered and mishaps that befell them. This novel took them years in the making between bouts of wine, beer, disagreements, erroneous recall and arguments.

This event is free, but due to the Covid 19 pandemic, seating is limited so chairs can be placed at six-foot intervals. Call 910.575.5999 to hold your spot. Coffee and tea will be served.

Sunset River Marketplace showcases work by approximately 150 North and South Carolina artists, and houses some 10,000 square feet of oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, mixed media, art glass, fabric art, pottery, sculpture, turned and carved wood and artisan-created jewelry.
There are two onsite kilns and five wheels used by the gallery’s pottery students. Art classes are currently being offered on a limit basis. Call the gallery for details.
