Liollio’s Jennifer Graham Charzewski and Jane Thompson enjoyed attending the2019 Annual Meeting for the Friends of South Carolina Libraries at the impressive Florence SC Main Library last week. Jennifer participated in a joint panel discussion with Tina Gills from Richland Library that highlighted the pre-planning and design approach to St. Andrews Library and Ballentine Library, as featured in the 2018 Library Design Showcase. The main theme of the panel discussion was how a collaborative team effort between library, community, and designers can result in creative solutions (large or small) that address the unique cultural aspects of each library and can help create destination features – rooted in the identity of each community. #design #library #planning #community #friends #southcarolina #sc #LibraryJournal Richland Library Friends of South Carolina Libraries South Carolina Library Association (SCLA) Berkeley County Library System - BCLS Charleston County Public Library College of Charleston Friends of the Library

The Sophia Institute is happy to celebrate Ann Kidd Taylor and her first novel, The Shark Club. We welcome Sue Monk Kidd who will make a special introduction of her daughter Ann Kidd Taylor. Co-sponsored by the College of Charleston Friends of the Library.

The Shark Club is a novel about love, loss, and sharks by the New York Times bestselling coauthor of the memoir Traveling with Pomegranates. Set against the intoxicating backdrop of palm trees, blood orange sunsets, calypso bands, and key lime pies, The Shark Club is a love story, an environmental mystery, and an exploration of a woman’s mysterious kinship with the sea and the sharks that inhabit it.

CofC's athletic department is considering closing the pool and cutting the swim and diving program--subsequently killing Club Swim and free swim for all students. Help us keep the pool open by signing the petition below. Show them that the pool, though outdated, is not an eyesore but an opportunity for change. We can bring the updated athletic branding to the Stern Center pool and make it worthy of our school! #saveCofCswimanddive

As we reflect on the most publicized presidential election in American History, legal commentator and television host, Dan Abrams, will provide thought-provoking insights into the media's increasing role in shaping our modern political landscape. Abrams serves as the chief legal affairs anchor and commentator for ABC News and is a published author and former anchor of Nightline.

He worked as chief legal correspondent and analyst for NBC News, as general manager of MSNBC and as an anchor for that network, Abrams first became known for covering the OJ Simpson case as a legal analyst. In addition to serving as a television host, Abrams is CEO of Abrams Research, which connects business and the media with a specialization in social media strategy, as well as founder and publisher of the innovative news website, Mediate. The Friends of the Library this year pilot a new Winthrop Roundtable format with a lecture-lecture style keynote address in Alumni Hall followed by an expanded cocktail reception in Hill Exhibition Gallery.

Today!! Lecture and Book Signing: “The Freedom Schools: A History of Student Activism in the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement,” Jon Hale, PhD, College of Charleston, Avery Research Center, Sept 22, 6pm

In this presentation, Dr. Jon N. Hale will discuss his recent publication, The Freedom Schools: A History of Student Activism in the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement (Columbia University Press, 2016). This book examines the history of the Mississippi Freedom Schools, a network of schools that advocated for full political, economic, and social equality in the 1960s by adopting a progressive curriculum and providing students with opportunities for political engagement during the civil rights movement. Drawing upon rich archival sources and dozens of oral histories, this book provides a social history of the Freedom Schools from the students’ and teachers’ perspectives to provide insight into how and why students enrolled, what their experiences were, how education was used to contest inequality, and what impact these schools had on the civil rights movement. Those who participated in the Freedom Schools subsequently joined the front lines by boycotting their schools, organizing protests in the hometowns, and demanding a quality education in the era of desegregation. The legacy of their work deepens our understanding of the civil rights movement and it demonstrates how many of the promises of the movement remain unfulfilled.

Dr. Jon Hale is an Associate Professor of Educational History at the College of Charleston. His research focuses on the use of education among activists during the civil rights movement of the twentieth century.
