The third annual Pat Conroy Literary Center's Lowcountry Book Club Convention is a day of educational conversations and fellowship programs for book club members and those considering joining a book club. This free public event is presented in partnership with the Technical College of the Lowcountry and NeverMore Books, and is funded in part by a generous gift from the Pulpwood Queens Book Club.
Keynoting our Lowcountry Book Club Convention this year will be Kim Michele Richardson, author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, in conversation with fellow novelist Bren McClain, author of One Good Mama Bone.
Praise for The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek: The novel espouses a welcome faith that books, when freely and equally available to all, have a remarkable capacity to heal and redeem our spirits as well as enrich and embolden our imaginations.... The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a timely and necessary novel, certain to find an enthusiastically loyal following among book clubs, for whom it offers myriad opportunities for engagement, and with librarians and library patrons, for whom it is a heartrending hero's tale.--Charleston Post & Courier
