Description
Baruch Roundtable: The Lowcountry's Altered Landscapes. The next Baruch Roundtable - the Hobcaw House salon and sit down dinner - features noted South Carolinian and author Josephine Humphreys. The evening begins with  a reception at Hobcaw House, and culminates with an after dinner talk in the living room featuring Ms. Humphreys, who often writes of changes to the Lowcountry's natural and cultural landscape. Her award-winning novels include Dreams of Sleep, The Firemen's Fair, Nowhere Else on Earth, and Rich in Love, which became a feature film, shot in Charleston and starring Albert Finney and Jill Clayburgh. Ms. Humphreys is an alumna of Ashley Hall. She received a BA from Duke, where she studied creative writing with Reynolds Price, an MA from Yale, and attended the University of Texas.  She has won a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Lyndhurst Prize, and a literature award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She is a member of the South Carolina Academy of Authors and the Fellowship of Southern Writers. She lives on Sullivan's Island and Johns Island where she reflects on the beauty, traditions and troubled past of the Lowcountry. (Exertion level: Low - sitting, some standing and eating) Reservations required. $100, www.HobcawBarony.org.
