Brookgreen offers history talk

  • Friday, July 18, 2014

South Carolina author Rose Tomlin will speak and sign copies of her new historical novel about Theodosia Burr Alston entitled, “Duel of the Heart,” on Sat., Aug. 2, at 3 p.m. in the Wall Lowcountry Center Auditorium at Brookgreen Gardens.

The talk is free with garden admission.

Theodosia Burr Alston was born the daughter of political figure Aaron Burr when the United States was in its infancy.

She was a prodigious child, living a privileged life in Manhattan during a captivating period in U.S. history, and acquiring, at her father’s insistence, “a most perfect education.”

Theodosia’s story is fascinating in its complexity. An impressive woman in her own right, she was destined for greatness through her personal and political connections.

The unexpected conclusion of Theodosia’s story will inspire readers to learn more about this intriguing woman.

Rose Tomlin’s published work includes “Two Seasons, Poetry by a Mother and Daughter.”

Her personal essays have appeared in the Dallas Morning News, the Wilmington Star and the Post & Courier.

She is a Post and Courier Golden Pen winner. Her screenplay won the Grand Jury Award at the Worldfest International Film Festival in 1995 and first place in the annual Southeastern Creative Media Competition. “Duel of the Heart” is her first novel.
