Due to the great success of the Insurance "Spring Cleaning" Program, Green Law Firm is happy to announce that it has now become a permanent initiative for members of the community to take advantage of. If you haven't heard about it yet, attorney Bill Green invites you and your family members to have their home, auto, and renters insurance policies reviewed by an unofficial “Insurance Detective” on the Green Law Firm team for free. Policies will be examined to uncover mysteries and gaps in coverage that could leave people vulnerable after an accident occurs.

Kwame Alexander, New York Times-bestselling author and 2015 Newberry Medal recipient, will be the featured speaker at this year’s Black Ink: A Charleston African American Book Festival.

Alexander will join at least 50 black authors and hundreds of readers for the second annual event on Saturday, September 23rd from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the main branch of the Charleston County Public Library. The event is free and open to the public.
