The Preservation Society of Charleston’s Book & Gift Shop at King & Queen will host author Nicole Seitz to sign her newest book Beyond Molasses Creek. Having traveled to the ends of the earth as a flight attendant, Ally Green has finally returned to the Lowcountry to bury her father as well as the past. But Vesey Washington is still living across the creek, and theirs is a complicated relationship—he was once her best friend . . . and also part of the reason she’s stayed away so long. When Ally discovers a message her father left behind asking her to quit running, it seems her past isn’t through with her yet.
As Ally’s wandering spirit wrestles with a deep longing to flee again, a young woman on the other side of the world escapes her life of slavery in the rock quarries of Nepal. A mysterious sketchbook leads Sunila Kunari to believe there’s more to her story than she’s ever been told, and she’s determined to follow the truth wherever it leads her.
A deep current intertwines the lives of these three souls, and a destiny of freedom, faith, and friendship awaits them all on the banks of Molasses Creek.
This book signing event is free and open to the public. Stop by the Preservation Society of Charleston’s Book & Gift Shop on Sunday, July 14 from 1-4pm during Second Sunday on King Street.
Before moving to Charleston in 1997, Fred was a valedictorian from the Belgian Maritime College and spent three years at sea. With a major in finance, he spent 30 years at J. P. Morgan & Co. focusing on global credit exposure, so was able to live and travel all over the world. There are no continents and very few countries he has not seen. While living in the United States, a favorite family vacation spot was Kiawah, which eventually led to him permanently moving to Charleston in 1997 after retirement, to “the most European of American cities”.

The Preservation Society of Charleston’s Book & Gift Shop at will host author Karen Stokes on Sunday, June 9th from 1-4pm during Second Sunday on King Street.
Karen Stokes’ book, Immortal 600 takes place in 1864, when six hundred Confederate prisoners of war, all officers, were taken out of a prison camp in Delaware and transported to South Carolina. Upon their arrival, most were confined in a Union stockade prison on Morris Island. They were placed in front of two Union forts as “human shields” during the siege of Charleston and exposed to a fearful barrage of artillery fire from Confederate forts. Many of these men would suffer an even worse ordeal at Union-held Fort Pulaski near Savannah, Georgia, where they were subjected to severe food rationing as retaliatory policy. Author and historian Karen Stokes uses the prisoners’ writings to relive the courage, fraternity and struggle of the “Immortal 600.”
This event is free and open to the public. Visit www.preservationsociety.org to see more book signings happening this month at the shop.
Original music was composed for the play by Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen (both recent Fromm commission recipients and members of the International Contemporary Ensemble - currently in residence at the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center) for instruments Nannerl knew intimately, such as clavichords, music boxes, and bells, as well as teacups, fans, and other ordinary objects that might have captured her imagination.
With the opulent beauty of the dress and hair design, the sweet smells of perfume, and the clouds of dusting powder rising from the stage, the performance creates a multi-sensual experience and transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight -- but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice. There, in communion with the audience, this other Mozart at last tells her story.
