Lunch at the State Library

Bring your bag lunch to the State Library on Thursday, December 6 and enjoy an interesting hour with author and history professor, Robert K. Ackerman as he discusses his book, Wade Hampton III.


The free program will be held from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the State Library’s Administration Building at 1430 Senate Street in Columbia.  (This is the old Archives building, not the building with the lions in front.)

Providing the most balanced and comprehensive portrayal of Wade Hampton III to date, Robert K. Ackerman's biography explores the remarkable abilities and tragic failings of the planter-statesman who would come to personify the Civil War and Reconstruction in South Carolina.

The Speaker at the Center series is presented by the South Carolina Center for the Book, the South Carolina affiliate of the Library of Congress Center for the Book. The SC Center for the Book is a cooperative project of the SC State Library, the University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science, and The Humanities Council SC.

Hope to see you there!
