From Between Water & Main Bed & Breakfast


BELHAVEN —  Don’t struggle to find the perfect Christmas present for the dearest person in your life. Give the gift of time. Spend a day in the quaint, waterfront town of Belhaven. Brunch, shop, dine or stay. Seal the memory by joining New York Times best-selling author Andra Watkins on a hilarious, motivational journey that will encourage you to live a life without regret.

A South Carolina native, Watkins is the first person to walk the entire 444-mile length of the Natchez Trace, America’s oldest “highway,” from Mississippi to Tennessee. With every step, she tested her own resolve, as well as her relationship with her father, her “wingman” on the journey. Her story is beautifully crafted in the memoir “Not Without My Father.”

Andra Watkins’ presentation “I Walked 444 Miles to Make a Memory” is sponsored by Between Water & Main Bed & Breakfast and will be held at the Wilkinson Center, 144 W. Main St., Belhaven, on Feb. 11, from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be obtained by calling the B&B at 252-943-0367. Book sales and signing to follow. A limited number of $25 tickets, which include the price of admission to the presentation, are available for an exclusive Meet & Greet with the author at Between Water & Main, 367 E. Water St., just a short drive or 10-minute walk from the Wilkinson Center, from 12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m. All reservations must be made in advance. For more information, email: Books will be available for purchase at Handpicked Sister, Pamlico St., Belhaven.

An Amazon featured memoir for both Women’s History Month and the National Park Service 100th Anniversary, “Not Without My Father” is a New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller. It was nominated for the 2015 National Book Award for Non-fiction. Watkins is the author of the acclaimed Nowhere series.
