SAVANNAH, Ga. – Last week, Visit Savannah’s podcast, Savannah, Georgia: Anything But Ordinary, dropped their latest episode with special guest John Berendt, author of “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” In this episode, host Shannon Lowery sits down with Berendt and exchanges views on his acclaimed non-fiction novel.

“The story and the legend of “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” have already lasted for decades and will likely continue for generations,” said Joseph Marinelli, president of Visit Savannah. “It’s fun for us to find new and inventive ways to showcase “the book” to those that are already fans and to create new ones. We’re grateful for Mr. Berendt’s time and enthusiasm to want to help us keep the conversation going in this way. Since its release late last week, the episode has already garnered more than 13,000 post clicks, 500 social media shares, and 180k impressions.”

“Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” is a controversial and mysterious read about Savannah socialite, preservationist, and antique dealer Jim Williams. Williams was convicted of shooting his lover, Danny Hansford, in the famed Mercer Williams House, now one of Savannah’s most renowned house museums. Click here to listen to the full episode.
