Here are The Moveable Feast December 2015 Luncheons:

Georgialina: A Southland as We Knew It by Tom Poland

Friday, December 4, 2015 at Ocean One

A nostalgic look at Georgia and South Carolina before development, outsiders, and modern conveniences brought wholesale change. Veteran journalist and Southern storyteller Tom Poland has been writing about the disappearing rural South for nearly four decades. With a companionable appreciation for nostalgia, preservation, humor, and wonder, Georgialina: A Southland as We Knew It brings to life once more the fading and often-forgotten unfiltered character of the South as Poland takes readers down back roads to old home places, covered bridges, and country stores. He recalls hunting for snipes and for lost Confederate gold; the joys of beach music, the shag, and cruising Ocean Drive; and the fading traditions of sweeping yards with homemade brooms, funeral processions, calling catfish, and other customs of southern heritage and history. Peppered with candid memoir, Georgialina also introduces readers to a host of quirky and memorable characters who have populated the southland of Poland’s meanderings.

Pull up a front porch rocker, relax, pour yourself a glass of sweet tea and prepare to be enchanted.
