If you know Charlotte Lit at all, you probably know we like to throw a party.
Every year at this time, we do something interesting, party-wise. Four years ago we made our debut with a 100-person event at The Light Factory featuring poet Linda Pastan. A year later, in February 2017, we celebrated our first birthday and the 100th of Carson McCullers in the very house where she lived while writing The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. (It’s now Copper Restaurant.) Last year, we went to play in the garden—Wing Haven Gardens, that is—where we paid tribute to trees (and gave all participants a seedling to plant), and were entertained by Bryn Chancellor, author of Sycamore, and Martin Settle, reading from his collection Maple Samaras.
This year on March 3, Charlotte Lit celebrates its third birthday at Mint Museum Randolph, with special guest Judy Goldman. Tickets are $50 and include hors d’oeuvres from La-Tea-Dah’s, dessert from Sunflour Baking Company, wine and beer and other beverages, and a signed hardcover copy of Judy’s new memoir, Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap. (Charlotte Lit Supporting Members receive one free ticket, and McCullers Society Members receive two). Register here!
