Thursday, Mar 2, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Sandcastle, Kiawah Island SC
On Thursday, March 2, Kiawah’s OUR WORLD Lecture Series will present writer and researcher Virginia Beach, author of a much-discussed new book on the past and future of Middleton Place, one of SC’s original plantations.
A recent review in the Post and Courier says American Landmark: Charles Duell and the Rebirth of Middleton Place is “not only masterfully researched, but also dynamic and engaging, much like Middleton Place itself.”Most importantly, according to the reviewer, “the book deals head on with conversations about race, slavery, and how a landmark such as Middleton Place is forever marked by its exploitative past—and how that acknowledgment is shaping its future.”
