"Against the Tide" - Jan. 31st

If you read the 300th Birthday supplement to the Beaufort Gazette on January 16th, you already know that Harriet Keyserling was the first woman elected to Beaufort County Council. But her influence didn't stop there. The Friends of the Beaufort County Library provide a chance for you to learn more about her political activism on Monday.

Jan. 31st -- Against the Tide: One Woman's Political Struggle by Harriet Keyserling.
Reviewer: Linda Tarr-Whelan
Location: USCB Performing Arts Theater, 801 Carteret Street
Time: Doors Open at 11:30am. Program: Noon to 1 pm.
Sponsor: Books Sandwiched In series

After the program, consider visiting one of our branch libraries and checking out the book from our local history sections.

We have other materials about her listed within the "Local Notables" page (a little something that we did in concert with Historic Beaufort Foundation a few years ago, but still maintained and updated by us). Some of the materials can be checked out. Those materials that must remain in the BDC can be seen during our customary hours of operation (i.e., Mondays through Fridays, 10 am until 5 pm).
