A wonderful venue for my book event, An Eventective User from Charlotte, North Carolina

The Historical Society was the perfect venue for my book signing event. Good seating, good lighting, easy access, good parking across the street and the ambiance was perfect. The coordinator, Lauren Hoyer, did a wonderful job with the details and was very easy to work with. Thanks CCHS.
