SOUTHPORT – The N.C. Maritime Museum at Southport and The Friends of the Museum are proud to host Celia Rivenbark, humorist, author and nationally syndicated columnist, on Tuesday, November 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. Once again, she will grace us with her quick – witted presence for an always stimulating commentary on American Culture. Her latest book, You Don’t Sweat Much for a Fat Girl, is one of many sassy reads that will make you laugh out loud! Prepare yourself and bring tissues.
The program will be held at the Southport Community Building at 223 East Bay St. in Southport. The program is free but seats fill quickly and registration is required. Call the Museum at (910) 457-0003.
