From The Berkeley Independent:
Lowcountry readers interested in the life and times of an influential South Carolina political strategist turned worldwide evangelist will have a chance to learn more this weekend.
Upstate author Ginny Dent Brant, eldest daughter of the late Harry S. Dent Sr., will be in Moncks Corner and Summerville Saturday to sign copies of her new book, “Finding True Freedom: From the White House to the World,” a memoir about her father and his remarkable life’s journey.
Originally from St. Matthews, Dent entered politics to save the world and protect the freedoms of his country, Brant says. Dent began his career working for Senator Strom Thurmond and would go on to serve three presidents and become a chief architect of the Republican Party’s Southern Strategy. At the height of his political career, he would be a trusted, high ranking strategist for President Richard M. Nixon – and would be one of the few in that administration to escape the Watergate scandal.
