2012 GEORGIA LITERARY FESTIVAL AT THE GOLDEN ISLES
Eugenia Price's St. Simons Island
"Distinct from the other barrier islands off the coast of Georgia, St. Simons is, in its own way, a small, unique universe, harmonious and orderly at its core--its soul . . ." wrote Eugenia Price.
Experience the island's magic through Price's eyes as you see the places she loved and wrote about. The characters of the Simons Island trilogy will come to life during this three-hour fully guided tour, which includes a visit to Christ Church Frederica and its cemetery, where Ms. Price is buried. It is here that Anson Dodge lies in a common grave with his beloved first wife, Ellen. Other sites visited will be the 1872 lighthouse, the Coastal Georgia Historical Society Museum and Eugenia Price Room, Gascoigne Bluff, and the Avenue of Oaks leading to Retreat Plantation.
