Next Tuesday, Jan. 22nd at 5:30pm, SCPC welcomes three scholars to the Hollings Library to discuss their work writing about the lives of Fritz Hollings, Strom Thurmond, William Jennings Bryan Dorn, and others. We invite you to join us!
Panelists will be noted South Carolina journalist Jack Bass, who will discuss his book, ‘Ol Strom; Prof. Jack Roper, Richardson Professor of American History at Virginia’s Emory & Henry College and biographer of Benjamin Mays and William Jennings Bryan Dorn; and Cambridge University doctoral candidate David Ballentine, currently at work on a biography of Ernest F. “Fritz” Hollings.
It’s open to the public and we’ll have light refreshments after, as well as an opportunity to purchase and have signed books by Bass and Roper.
While you’re here, you can check out a new exhibit, Life and Times: The Art of Political Biography , created by graduate student Caitlin Mans. Her exhibit looks at the research and writing process of two South Carolina biographers, Phil Grose and Jack Bass, whose papers we have at SCPC.
