The Project Director Laura Pelzer said, “Events, like this one, are the foundation of a robust literary and writing community. These opportunities bring writers and community members together and are the catalysts for expansion of a network of regional writers and strengthen depth of work as ideas are shared.”

The Charleston Library Society is a cultural institution for life-long learning, serving its members, the Lowcountry community and scholars through access to its rich collection of books, historic manuscripts and archival material and programs promoting discussion and understanding of the ideas they contain.
