Walterboro ~ Edisto River Black Water Crown Jewel


Event Details


Join us at the Colleton Museum for an in depth, first-hand look at the Edisto River. The Edisto River, the longest free-flowing black water river in North America, is one of the most important rivers in the world, a force of life for the Atlantic Ocean. The river is entirely contained in South Carolina and is under threat. Susan spent eight years in the making of “Edisto River: Black Water Crown Jewel,” working with nature photographer Larry Price and co-author Rosie Price. The making of the book, a winner of seven national awards, was a journey of its own, an experience that profoundly changed the lives of the three people who created the book.

Susan Kammeraad-Campbell is the publisher and editor in chief of Joggling Board Press and creator and producer of Storyboard America, a podcast being piloted in South Carolina in partnership with S.C. Public Radio. She is the author of “Edisto River: Black Water Crown Jewel,” winner of seven national awards, and “Doc: The Story of Dennis Littky,” which became an NBC movie of the week called “A Town Torn Apart.” She has served as lead editor of 34 books, many of which have won multiple literary and design awards. Joggling Board Press is a teaching press, and, over the years, Susan has mentored more than 30 interns and apprentices.
