Speaker Series: Patricia Moore-Pastides

Join us as we host USC First Lady and author Patricia Moore-Pastides to discuss her new book, At Home in the Heart of the Horseshoe: Life in the University of South Carolina's President's House

At Home in the Heart of the Horseshoe is the first book to feature the workings of the President's House and gardens. A pictorial tour through all the public rooms calls attention to the provenance of special antiques and works of art. Presidential events are described and illustrated in charming photographs, and delectable recipes and novel flower-arrangement ideas are shared.

Perhaps most compelling are the stories from family members who have lived in the President's House. Through interviews with wives and children - and in one case a grandchild - of former university presidents, readers are privy to their most vivid memories of life in the house and recollections of campus happenings. Experiencing the house as her home, Moore-Pastides shares highlights of her years as First Lady, including the most poignant times as well as the lighter moments.”
