This weekend I had the opportunity to meet Rebecca Darwin (also an alumna), the Founder and CEO of
Garden & Gun, at the Journalism School, U.N.C. Chapel Hill.
What an honor to meet such an intelligent, accomplished, generous, and authentic woman. She stood and spoke with us for a time and was genuinely interested in our lives and inquiries. It was such a delight to be learning on campus at my alma mater, even after all these years.
My family has long given books as gifts. They are wonderful for the receiver, and then later bring joy as they are passed on and reviewed. Garden and Gun just published two books in time for the holidays. The Southerner's Handbook, would be the perfect gift for the resident prep in your life. It is full of editorials, tips, and some recipes. Their second book, Good Dog, is the prime gift for pet lovers.
