Synopsis:  A seemingly forgotten moment in history, lost to time & left only as the fragmented memories of those who lived it. A flash flood washes through a small town trailer park, permanently altering the lives of those who lived there. In “If I Forget Thee, Lowcountry,” poet & flood survivor William James dredges up memories & flashbacks, buried by a quarter-century of time, to share with the reader not only the destructive force & waves of panic brought on by the rush of water, but to celebrate the place of community & belonging that was first lost, then reclaimed.
