Author Talk with Nelle and Ora Smith

Join us for an author talk with Nelle and Ora Smith, who will discuss their book Paradise: Memories of Hilton Head in the Early Days on Thursday, September 28 at 10:00 AM at the Hilton Head Branch Library. Nelle and her daughter Ora arrived in Hilton Head in the early 1960s, and have watched the island’s progress ever since. Their 2018 book talks about the island’s history from just after the bridges were built, describing how Nelle, Ora, and the entire Smith family have been helping the island grow from a small island town to a true southern community. 

This program is presented by the Beaufort District Collection – Beaufort County’s Special Collections Library.
