The University of South Carolina Libraries and the University South
Caroliniana Society present Jacquelyn Dowd Hall, who will discuss her new
book, Sisters and Rebels: A Struggle for the Soul of America on Thursday,
October 3, at 5 p.m. at the Ernest F. Hollings Special Collections Library,
1322 Greene Street, Columbia, SC 29208. The event is free.

Sisters and Rebels tells the story of Elizabeth, Grace, and Katharine
Lumpkin, sisters who followed divergent paths leading from a family history
steeped in the Lost Cause of the Confederacy into a progressive twentieth
century of women’s achievement, desegregation, communism, McCarthyism and
civil rights. Dr. Hall is a National Humanities Medal-winning author and
professor emerita at UNC-Chapel Hill. Dr. Hall will be available to sign
copies of her book, offered for purchase after the talk.

The event is free and open to the public. Go online for more information and
