BooksAlive: We Are Charleston Authors Book Talk

Presented by Bay County Public Library at Bay County Public Library, Panama City FL

Feb 03 2017
BooksAlive: We Are Charleston Authors Book Talk

Join us for a memorable evening with “We are Charleston” authors Herb Frazier (award-winning journalist and childhood member of Mother Emanuel), Dr. Bernard Edward Powers (A.M.E. Church member and professor of history at the College of Charleston) and Marjory Wentworth (South Carolina’s Poet Laureate).

The book covers extensive interviews with family and friends of “The Emanuel Nine” – the church members who lost their lives on June 17, 2015, when a young man opened fire on a prayer meeting at the church. “We are Charleston” explores the power and price of forgiveness in the face of racism.

Bay County Public Library Foundation is sponsoring the event so that it will be free and open to the public.
