I'd like to thank the Pea River Historical & Genealogical Society for inviting me to speak this week. This was my first speaking engagement associated with "Abandoned Wiregrass." It was exciting to meet so many people enthusiastic about their local history. I spoke for about an hour about the book and the places I photographed throughout the Wiregrass. Several in the audience knew details and background on the places in the book I didn't know. They were a treasure trove of information!
The Pea River Historical & Genealogical Society does much to promote the Wiregrass and preserve South Alabama history, from keeping historical records to selling books on local history (like Abandon Wiregrass). If you'd like to learn more about them, click here.
