The Charleston Library Society will welcome Jonas Pate, one of the creators of hit Netflix series "Outer Banks," which was filmed in the Lowcountry. 

Pate will take part in a speaker series from 6-7 p.m. Oct. 21. He'll discuss what it's like to film in Charleston, have a career as a filmmaker and meet the challenges that emerge when creating a new show. 

Though they grew up in the North Carolina Outer Banks, Pate and twin brother Josh spent a lot of time in Charleston during their youth, since their parents owned S.N.O.B., High Cotton and a number of other local restaurants. 

In addition to "Outer Banks," Pate wrote and directed "The Grave," "Deceiver," and "The Take." He co-created "Good vs. Evil" and "Surface."  

"Outer Banks" has won a People's Choice Award for most binge-worthy show, and Season 2 streams hit a staggering high with 2.1 billion minutes watched within a week in August. 

Limited tickets to the conversation with Pate are $10 for Charleston Library Society members and $15 for nonmembers. They can be purchased at or by calling 843-723-9912.
