An Edgecombe County woman has published her fifth book on local history, “Legendary Locals of Edgecombe and Nash Counties.”

Monika S. Fleming worked with the Twin County Museum and Hall of Fame, Braswell and Edgecombe libraries, and the Edgecombe County Veterans Military Museum to identify more than 180 local legends who are highlighted in the book.

“Legendary Locals of Edgecombe and Nash Counties” is a chronicle of the history of the Twin Counties as told through the stories of the men and women who founded it, nourished it, and left their mark in the fields of education, medicine, business, sports, literature, music, and the armed forces.

The book is part of Arcadia Publishing’s Legendary Locals series, and is only the second title in the series in North Carolina.

Fleming said she has enjoyed being able to share the  stories of the people in the book.

“It’s been a real joy to be able to tell these stories,” she said. “The Twin Counties’ history are intertwined. We are fortunate we have so much history that has been saved.”

Fleming has participated in several book signings in the Twin Counties. Several events are being planned in April.

A local historian and tour guide, Fleming has authored four previous historical books on the area. Fleming currently serves as the Historic Preservation Program Director at Edgecombe Community College.

She is a member of the N.C. Literary and Historical Association, the Federation of North Carolina History Societies, Organization of American Historians, and Edgecombe County Genealogical Society. She holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from East Carolina University.

In addition to the book-signing locations, copies of “Legendary Locals of Edgecombe and Nash Counties” are available at Rusty’s, Thorne Drug Center, and the Blount-Bridgers House in Tarboro; and Walgreen’s in Rocky Mount.
