“In the Arms of Angels” book signing April 12 and 17 PROVIDED

Charleston’s historic Magnolia Cemetery receives a comprehensive tribute as one of America’s premier Victorian Era cemeteries in Patrick Harwood’s new book, “In the Arms of Angels: Magnolia Cemetery – Charleston’s Treasure of History, Mystery and Artistry.”

The hardcover book’s 231 pages document Magnolia’s rich history; artistic, magnificent monuments; symbolism; spirituality; and landscape design. The pages are filled with stories about cemetery “residents” and color photographs that capture the 19th-century Victorian necropolis’ unique style and look. Harwood, a journalist and photographer, teaches communication courses at the College of Charleston.

Harwood will have a book signing on Saturday, April 12, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Magnolia Cemetery, which is located in Charleston at 70 Cunnington Ave. Cost of the book is $40. Payment will be by cash or check only.

A signing will also be held on Thursday, April 17 at C of C’s Cougar Mall from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

“In the Arms of Angels” has been endorsed by several local historians. Richard W. Hatcher III of the Fort Sumter National Monument calls it “a well-balanced work combining history and beautiful photography of one of the South’s most historic cities of the dead.” College of Charleston history professor Robert P. Stockton praises the book as “the first work to deal with the art, architecture and landscape design of Magnolia Cemetery in a comprehensive manner.”
