A Vanishing Southland

Monday, February 13, 2017, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Vanishing Southland: The Loss of Ways and Traditions. Join author Tom Poland as he discusses South Carolina’s vanishing vestiges of the past. Tom often writes about the vanishing ways, places, and traditions that have blessed the South with a sense of place: small towns that close at noon Wednesdays, vanishing country stores, telephoning fish, wasp attacks in church, casting spells to remove warts, and more. He brings the Southland of yesteryear alive … despite change and newcomers the South lives on.

This program is sponsored by South Carolina Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities; inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture, and heritage.
