Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival Slated for November

Written by

Following up on their January announcement, the Charleston Library Society and The Charleston Trust U.K. last week announced details for a new collaborative literary festival taking place in Charleston, SC from November 2-5, 2017. The festival, called Charleston to Charleston, is modeled on, and formed in collaboration with, the Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex, home to the Charleston Festival, one of England’s premier literary gatherings.

The Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival will offer a weekend full of programs supporting all things literary, scholarly, and creative with authors and readers from around the world. Events will take place at various Holy City locations, including the Charleston Library Society, the Charleston Music Hall, and the Circular Congregational Church.

Confirmed guests include:
Sir Kim Darroch, British Ambassador to the U.S.
Southern historian Marjorie Spruill
Nigerian novelist and poet Ben Okri
British novelist Bernard Cornwell
Former Director of London’s Globe Theater Dominic Dromgoole

The guests will discuss topics from Shakespeare, feminism, and race to the Charleston Renaissance in the 1920s. The festival will also include a special red carpet advanced screening of the film Breathe by Oscar-nominated screenwriter William Nicholson.
