Fine People and Fine Day for Middleton Place Talk and Cemetery Tour

Yesterday helped get 2015 off to a great start! I had the honor of speaking about my Magnolia Cemetery books to a large group of guides at Middleton Place, one of the Charleston area's greatest and best attractions.

After my talk at the Middleton Place pavilion (organized by Marty Turney), most of us drove to Magnolia Cemetery where superintendent Beverly Donald led a walking tour of Middleton, Alston and Middleton Place-connected burial sites. Lots of history and beautiful examples of funerary art. And we were treated to a beautiful, sunny and comfortable winter day. 

It was a truly great day and I'm very appreciative of the opportunity to speak to such a prominent group and to, with Beverly Donald, show these Middleton guides what's so special and interesting about Magnolia Cemetery!
