In 2000, historians recognized the loss of a generation of storytellers, prompting the recording of oral history interviews for the book "Pawleys Island, Stories from the Porch," preserving memories for both natives and newcomers. Join Lee Brockington as she presents the updated edition, featuring a refreshed introductory note, island history, nostalgic photos from PICA's collection, and a new cover painting by artist Maura Kenny. This book, by Eugene B. Chase and Lee G. Brockington, offers insights into 200 years of Pawleys Island's history.
