Lunch and Learn with Kristy Harvey

425 Front St, Beaufort, NC 28516
(252) 728-5225

August 4, 2016
12 – 1 pm

The Beaufort Historical Association welcomes Kristy Harvey, an up and coming southern author and native of Eastern North Carolina, for a Lunch and Learn event at Clawson’s Restaurant Thursday, August 4 at noon. Join the fun for a great meal and witty presentation from Kristy on both of her novels, Dear Carolina and Lies and Other Acts of Love. Reservations are required for this presentation. The cost is $22.

Kristy Woodson Harvey’s captivating and insightful debut novel, Dear Carolina, introduced a fresh voice to southern women’s fiction. Now, with her second novel Kristy cements her status as a writer to watch. Bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand raves, Lies and Other Acts of Love establishes Kristy Woodson Harvey as a major new voice in southern fiction. A beautiful testament to the steel and elegance of the South and its women, Lies and Other Acts of Love is a powerful examination of the lies we tell to protect our loved ones—and the life-altering consequences of a hidden truth revealed.

For information on the Lunch and Learn or to reserve seat call 252-728-5225 or stop by the Visitor’s Center at 130 Turner Street in Beaufort.

The workshop will be led by the talented Mary Ellen Clement, a skilled craftsperson specializing in many forms of weaving and textiles, including the intricate art of basket making. Her basket work can be seen in the Mattie King Davis Art gallery on the Beaufort Historic Site.
The workshop is limited to 10 participants and has a materials fee of $15.For information on this and other Living History Programs, stop by the Beaufort Historic Site’s Welcome Center at 130 Turner Street, call 252-728-5225 or 800-575-7483, or visit www.beauforthistoricsite.org.

“With the farm to table dinner, our intent is to showcase our farmers, fishermen and food producers and their contributions to the county,” explained Catherine Elkins, a member of the Board of Directors and the event organizer.  “And our goal is to bring our OBFM friends, supporters and volunteers together for an evening of food, fun and friendship.

 

“We are also extremely pleased to have Carteret Community College Culinary Arts students join our team as guest chefs. The menu they have planned captures OBFM’s “shop local, buy fresh” theme,” she explained.

 

“In addition to the delicious buffet of local foods, we are offering an open air setting in downtown Beaufort — a short distance from the waterfront — and engaging music by Magnolia Still – a Raleigh-Durham based bluegrass and Americana band,” Elkins said.
