We’re excited to launch a brand new series of book and author events in partnership with some of our favorite writers and downtown restaurants.LUNCH & LIT kicks off with a lovely afternoon at Jianna (y’all know they’re never open for lunch, right?) and 100 Things To Do In Charleston Before You Die, by Lynn and Cele Seldon.
Culinary fans, outdoor enthusiasts and travel writers, this husband and wife team have a rich love affair with the Holy City and have built an arguably brilliant list. Come debate your favorites (or what got left out) over a special lunch prepared by Jianna chef Michael Kramer (who opened Charleston’s McCrady’s, back in the day!)
