From wealthy plantation owners to shopkeepers and field laborers, antebellum Charleston had distinct social and economic classes. Take a step back in time, and learn how these groups coexisted in this presentation by Marianne Cawley, manager of the library's S.C. History Room. Call 805-6956 for information.
This year's One Book Charleston County selection is Divergent by Veronica Roth, a critically acclaimed and huge bestseller about a futuristic society where residents are separated into one of five distinct groups, or factions based on their beliefs and talents. The goal of One Book is to unite local residents to read, attend events and discuss the core issues in a single book. The library is hosting Divergent-themed events through November 8. For a full list of activities and times, stop by your local library to pick up the One Book Charleston County guide.
