About the event

The novel The Invention of Wings was inspired by daring real-life abolitionists Sarah and Angelina Grimké. Valerie Perry, HCF’s Aiken Rhett House Museum Manager, will describe how she assisted author Sue Monk Kidd in her research. Lee Ann Bain, certified tour guide, will discuss how she separated fact from fiction to develop The Original Grimké Sisters Tour with her colleague Carol Ezell-Gilson.

The Food for Thought Luncheon Lecture Series is a favorite part of our annual spring programming. Each lecture is held in the Community Room of the Capt. James Missroon House, overlooking the High Battery at the Foundation's headquarters. Each Food for Thought program includes a light lunch provided by Caviar and Bananas and an opportunity for a short question and answer period after each intimate program. Space is limited and tickets are required.
