About This Show

(Originally broadcast 04/20/07) – Published in 1983, Lemon Swamp and Other Places: A Carolina Memoir is the work of Mamie Garvin Fields and her granddaughter, Dr. Karen Fields. The book recounts the "stories," or memoirs, of the life of Mamie Fields, who was born in 1888. The book has been described as a blend of "the scholarly with the personal, addressing the tensions between family and professional loyalties to produce a work meaningful in both spheres." A Distinguished Visiting Professor at USC's Institute for Southern Studies in 2007, Karen Fields joins Dr. Edgar to talk about the book.

They also explore the connection between colonial and antebellum South Carolina, and Bourdeaux, France.
