I was lucky enough to spent National Reading Day 2020 with the lovely ladies of the Cosmopolitan Woman’s Club of Seneca, South Carolina. I am telling y’all, there is nothing more fun than ladies who lunch–in order to do good work in the world.
The Cosmo Club raises funds for the Collins Children’s Home, a residential home for “children between the ages of birth – 21 who have been abused, abandoned, neglected or are otherwise unable to live with their families.” Their goal is “the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of our children, and the eventual reunification with their natural families whenever possible.”
Lunch was served by the Blue Marble Deli & City Market, and y’all, it was DELICIOUS. If you’re anywhere near Seneca, get there and eat forthwith. Sandwiches, soups, salads, and more–all made in house.
I remain eternally grateful that readers continue to enjoy Keowee Valley. It was my love letter to a place and time in history I adore more than any other: the wild and gorgeous Carolina backcountry, in the dangerous days leading up to the Revolutionary War. It feels like a gift, that others want to hear me talk about it.
On this National Reading Day, I hope you hunker down with a good book!
