A Haunted Evening
It's been a hauntingly busy week. I was privileged to debut my newest presentation, Haunted History, on March 21st and 22nd. The events were hosted by the Pat Conroy Literary Center at the glorious Rhett House Inn. Wine and cheese were served as guests gathered in the lush gardens of the oldest operating B&B in Beaufort. The Rhett House Inn functioned as a Union hospital during the Civil War and boasts its original Adams style mantels, heart pine floors, jib windows, and sprawling double verandahs.

The Haunted History presentation included the history of ghosts, as well as a few spine tingling tales, followed by a book signing. Typical of the Lowcountry, the weather varied from bitterly cold on Tuesday night to warm and buggy on Wednesday night.
Much of my research for this presentation came from The Ghost, A Cultural History by Susan Owens. If you'd like to know more about our centuries old obsession with spirits, I highly recommend this book.
The Haunted History presentation is now available both virtually or in person for groups or book clubs. For more information and availability please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
