A High Low Tide Book Cover

Hops at the History Center - Andre Joseph Gallant

Join us for a new DHC author’s program which debuts on Wednesday, December 12. Doors open at 5:30, event begins at 6:00. Author Andre Joseph Gallant will be speaking about his new book, A High Low Tide: The Revival of a Southern Oyster. Gallant, who lives in Athens, Georgia, is an independent journalist whose writing has appeared in Oxford American, the Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionBitter SouthernerModern FarmerCivil Eats and more. He is the founding editor of Crop Stories, a literary journal exploring farm culture in the American South.


Oysters are a narrative food: in each shuck and slurp, an eater tastes the place where the animal was raised. But that’s just the beginning. André Joseph Gallant uses the bivalve as a jumping-off point to tell the story of a changing southeastern coast, the bounty within its waters, and what the future may hold for the area and its fishers. With A High Low Tide he places Georgia, as well as the South, in the national conversation about aquaculture, addressing its potential as well as its challenges. We will have copies of his book available to purchase and you can get yours autographed! Your admission includes one drink ticket and you’ll have the option to purchase more.

Wednesday, December 12, 5:30 - 8:00 p.m.
