Reservations Required; $20 per person

Sue Monk Kidd’s bestselling novel, The Invention of Wings (Jan. 2014), has brought the story of the Grimké sisters to light. Though infamous abolitionists and feminists in their day, Angelina and Sarah Grimké have remained obscure in American history and (mostly) unrecognized in Charleston, city of their birth. The popularity of Kidd’s novel led to the creation of this walking tour by Lee Ann Bain and Carol Ezell-Gilson as part of the Preservation Society’s Fall Tours this past October. The tour sold out every offering. For more information please visit The Grimké Sisters Tour.

Lee Ann Bain and Carol Ezell-Gilson will be your guides for the tours. All tours are $20 per person and payment may be made in cash or check at tour time.  Reservations for all tours may be made at broadstreettours.com.  Tours must have a minimum of 6 people to go.
