Celebrate Local Authors: Becky Billingsley

Celebrate Local Authors: Becky Billingsley Book: Wicked Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand Date: Friday, August 14, 2015 at 10:00-12:00 p.m. The Grand Strand has a long tradition of hardworking independence and the enthusiastic pursuit of leisure activities. Myrtle Beach is known as a hotbed of hearty partiers, and its chronicles include bordellos, bootleggers, rumrunners, gamblers and a variety of indulgent practices. From Civil War deserters to the excesses of the disco era, the area has a wicked streak running parallel to its beaches. Join author and historian Becky Billingsley as she uncovers the naughty side of the Grand Strand. Becky will be on hand to sign her current book and will speak on some of the tales in the book as well as how she came to write this tantalizing local history book.
