"Southern Stories" - Savannah & Recap

The last stop for Southern Stories was the beautiful Lucas Theatre in Savannah, Georgia. We ended our tour with a fantastic screening--beautiful spring weather, excellent projection and sound, an audience of over 100, and a lovely reception at a nearby restaurant. Thanks to Meaghan and all the staff at the Lucas for a great night!

Now that we've returned from our tour across the Southeast, here's a final accounting, of sorts of our Southern Circuit Tour that I think says it all:
