Roldán-Shaw has been a freelance journalist based in Bluffton for nearly a decade, and has written hundreds of articles about the Lowcountry—its critters, characters, history and habitats in many area publications including Bluffton Today, Pink, La Isla and The Bluffton Breeze. The lecture will take place on Thursday, January 16th at 11:00AM the Lakehouse at Hampton Lake, Bluffton, SC.

“We’re looking forward to Michele Roldan-Shaw’s reading and lecture of her new book, Rambler’s Life, the South Reloaded. The book is a project she started in 2010 about her experiences while traveling around the Southeast. Michele has a way of getting to know her subjects and capturing them on paper. For those who would like to learn more about the area and the South this will be an entertaining lecture given by a gifted story teller of her unusual, but true life adventures,” said Catherine Guscio, Director of Fun at Hampton Lake.
