The Lost Dog Café on Folly Beach is a prominent location in mystery novels The Pier and Folly, which makes it a great place for a book signing. Mystery author Bill Noel will sign copies of and discuss his two literary endeavors on Aug. 5 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. The very next day, Noel will be at Bert’s Market from 3:30-7:30 p.m. Noel’s Folly Beach Mystery Series is not yet completed. The debut novel, Folly, was released in 2007 and The Pier was just released in May 2008. —Caitlin Baker
