Join Lindy Keane Carter, author of The Rice Birds, for the true stories of Charleston’s struggling Irish immigrants, abolition-defiant rice planters, scheming sea captains, and the workings of the vast hydraulic systems known as rice fields.
Since 1947 the Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens has been the Foundation’s largest fundraiser and educational tool and has provided intimate glimpses into some of the most beautiful homes and gardens in Charleston, SC. The Festival’s Food for Thought Lecture Series is a fan-favorite and this year the speakers and topics range from Charleston’s gardens and alluring interiors to Natural Disasters in the Lowcountry and everything in-between. Each lecture will be held atop Charleston’s High Battery at the Captain James Missroon house Community Room with a light lunch provided by Caviar and Bananas. Book singing will follow. Purchase your copy of The Rice Birds through Shop Historic Charleston, tax-free.
