Charleston has long been a destination for lovers of dramatic scenery and moving romance. To draw in Lowcountry readers, authors must not only create engaging characters but also describe architectural and landscape settings in such a way that readers long to visit. Join Sarah Ferguson, Archivist and Librarian for Historic Charleston Foundation, for a talk about resources authors can access to create their literary Lowcountry.
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.
