Dinner & A Lecture

Monday, January 23

“Upheaval   in Charleston: Earthquake and Murder on the Eve of Jim Crow,” will be the topic  at January’s Dinner & A Lecture at the Verdier House, January 23rd at 5:30 p.m. This latest work of non-fiction by Charleston historians Stephen  Hoffius and Susan Miller reads like fiction, but it is a disconcerting part of  Charleston’s real-life history. Set against the backdrop of the earthquake of  1886 and with the city of Charleston itself as a character, the story  illuminates the growth of Jim Crow attitudes and their inhibition of  Charleston’s economic and cultural progress. A wine and hors d’oeuvre reception  begins at 5:30; the program is 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. Admission for members is $15/$25  per member/couple. Non-member admission is $20/$30 per person/couple. Call  379-3331 to make reservations. Reservations for Saltus’ three-course dinner for  $19 may be made by calling Saltus.
