"Into Charleston’s Storied Past"

“That’s Savannah,” I said, correcting her. “We’re in Charleston. But this is also a writers’ city.
“Walking around the historic district is like reading a Southern novel,” I told the woman. “Scenes from stories and writers’ lives keep popping out at you…”

Taking a literary walk in the city’s historic district is like reading an atmospheric Southern novel, except that you get to see the scenes, not just imagine them.
