Historic Savannah Foundation’s new lecture series, “People, Places and Stories that Define Savannah,”  will feature lectures covering a wide range of speakers and topics. Each lecturer will give a presentation on a subject that falls within the realm of his or her expertise followed by a question-and-answer session.

The events will be open to the public but space is limited to 30 guests, so reservations are recommended.
