Piccolo Spoleto Literary Festival: The Civil War and Historical Memory with Dr. John M. McCardell, Jr. 

When: Thu., June 3, 10 a.m. 2010
Price: $16

Noted historian Dr. John M. McCardell, Jr., president- and vice chancellor-elect of the University of the South and president emeritus of Middlebury College, will explore some of the ways in which Americans have chosen to remember the Civil War in the years since 1865. He will also consider ways in which our impending observance might or might not differ from the commemorations of the 50th and 100th anniversaries of the war. Part of Piccolo Spoleto Festival's Literary Festival.

Who says books are boring?
The Charleston Library Society will bring an eclectic variety of speakers to Charleston. Authors will talk about local history, poets, and vampires

He vants to suck your blood
A direct descendent of Bram Stoker, Dacre Stoker will present Dracula: The Undead, a sequel to his great-grand uncle's story. Maybe a movie version will revitalize Winona Ryder's career.

All this, and Andy Rooney
60 Minutes producer Robert G. Anderson Jr. was there when Mike Wallace asked Dr. Jack Kevorkian the tough questions. Attending Anderson's lecture June 5 certainly won't have you considering doctor-assisted suicide.
