VIRTUAL PROGRAM – Internationally award-winning author Natasha Boyd will share the astounding accomplishments of Eliza Lucas Pinckney, who as a teenaged girl developed one of South Carolina’s most lucrative cash crops. So influential was Eliza in early America, President George Washington served as a pallbearer at her funeral. Boyd’s novel, The Indigo Girl, is based on historical documents, including Eliza’s letters. A recording of this webinar is available to ticket purchasers who are unable to join us at noon.
