Literary Dogs & Their South Carolina Writers
Charleston authors and their canines will be on hand to celebrate the launch of Literary Dogs and Their South Carolina Writers at the Charleston Library Society on Tuesday, Nov. 27, from 5-7 p.m. Mary Alice Monroe, Josephine Humphreys, Marjory Wentworth, Nicole Seitz, Beth Webb Hart and others will "meet and greet," present their dogs, and provide a panel discussion about writers and their dogs before the book signing and reception. Blue Bicycle Books and Hub City Press join the Library Society as sponsors of this event.
In "Literary Dogs & Their South Carolina Writers" twenty-five of the Palmetto State's most beloved authors introduce you to their most memorable dogs. There is Padgett Powell's "Ode to Spode," Josephine Humphreys' paean to a poodle, and Roger Pinckney's Daufuskie Dog-ageddon. Meet Marshall Chapman's Impy, Mindy Friddle's Otto, Beth Webb Hart's Bo Peep, and more. From bird dogs to bad dogs, wild dogs to café dogs, get to know these canines and their literary companions.
A portion of proceeds from book sales will be donated to an animal charity in Charleston. An admission donation of $5 would be appreciated.
The book, edited by John Lane and Betsy Teter of Spartanburg, is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. It sells for $19.95 at bookstores and online.
