image001The Lowcountry Initiative for the Literary Arts was featured in Sunday’s Charleston Post & Courier. CLICK HERE to read the great article by P&C’s Adam Parker.

And, in a great New York Times piece about former local author and LILA supporter, Sue Monk Kidd, LILA president Marjory Wentworth is quoted. The article is titled, Giving Voice, and Finding Her Own: Sue Monk Kidd Tackles Race in ‘The Invention of Wings’.

From the article: “There’s a spiritual component to her work,” said Marjory Wentworth, the poet laureate of South Carolina and a friend of Ms. Kidd’s. “I mean spiritual in the sense of exploring what keeps us going, what motivates us. What fascinates me about ‘The Invention of Wings’ is this question of how does someone from a rich, white, slaveholding home grow up to become a significant abolitionist?” she said. “This book explains that beautifully.”

We look forward to seeing LILA members at all our upcoming Write Charleston events…
