    Auditorium
    Enjoy an evening with Kate Campbell during the second quarterly presentation of Charleston Tells Concert Series. The people and culture of the modern South serve as the inspiration for Campbell's songs. Her endearing, clear-water vocal delivery and her eloquent gift for storytelling have drawn repeated comparisons to such bastions of the Southern literary tradition as Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty and William Faulkner. The Concert Series, presented by Charleston County Public Library, blends the area's Southern charm and rich heritage with a deep-rooted respect for oral history as a revered art form.
