New York Times best-selling author S.A. Cosby is coming to Manteo with two opportunities for fans and readers to meet and connect with him.

Cosby is the author of Blacktop Wasteland, a 2020 NY Times Notable Book, NPR Best Book of the Year, an Anthony Award Winner and the LA Times Book Prize Winner. His latest book, Razorblade Tears, debuted this summer at #10 on the NYT bestseller list and is the story of Ike and Buddy, two ex-cons of different backgrounds and races, who band together to get revenge for their dead sons. Movie rights to both books have been sold.

Downtown Books will be hosting a book signing with Cosby in the Courtyard at the Dare County Arts Council, located at 300 Queen Elizabeth Street in Manteo, on Saturday, October 16 from 4-5 p.m. To reserve your copies and spot in the signing line, call Downtown Books at 473-1056.
