A Chance to be Knighted Without a Trip to England

Book signing, chance to be knighted

Actress and co-editor Miss Barbara Hird can be found after each Thursday's performance of "Shepherd of the Ocean" in the Roanoke Island Festival Park Mall on Thursdays, June 4, 11 and 18.

She'll be signing copies of "Roanoke Revisited: The Story of the Lost Colony," which can be found in Festival Park's Museum Store. The book tells the stories of the first English settlements in the New World, and of the fabled lost colony of Roanoke Island. The stories have been compiled from reports that were originally prepared by colony leaders and published in the 16th century by Richard Hakluyt.

And there is no need to travel across the Atlantic Ocean to England to be knighted by their current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II; you can be knighted right here on Roanoke Island, where England's New World began. That's right; the queen, Miss Barbara Hird, will knight worthy young lords and ladies after each production of Shepherd of the Ocean. Call (252) 475-1500 or visit
