Drayton Hall Presents: Curators Unhinged

 There is a lot they know that they haven’t told us.

Drayton Hall is pulling their curators out of the galleries, house, and archaeology lab, handing them a drink and letting it fly on what they know, what they don’t know, and what they’re still arguing about.  Historic facts, theories, conjecture and wine flow as Drayton Hall’s curators make a new mark (smudge?) on history. Bring your questions on the mysteries of Drayton Hall. Ask them where the colonnades are and what their ten-year bet is. No holds barred, the gloves are off at Charleston Library Society on Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 6 to 8 pm.

Round table discussion is free to all. The reception is for $10 members and $20 non-members. CLS members may use the promo code LIBRARY to login to the DH website to register for this event. Advanced registration required, please. No door admittance can be accommodated, please RSVP HERE TO ATTEND.

This lecture is made possible by a grant from South Carolina Humanities.
