John's Island Regional Library - Join Dr. Jessica Berry, author of "The Little Gullah Geechee Book: A Guide for the Come Ya" for an interactive reading. There is a hidden treasure on the tongues of Lowcountry  natives. The melodic rhythm of the Gullah Geechee language still rings strong from the South Carolina inland regions to the Sea Island coasts. Whether you are a tourist traveling through the Lowcountry corridor, a "come ya" who has made the Lowcountry your new home, or a "been ya" who was born and raised under the moss of the beautiful oak trees, there is always something to learn about Gullah Geechee.
